Did you know... How to do Arrow connections between layers?

You select the Connect tool, choose Arrow mode, click on your source socket and you want to move to another layer. How?

2 ways:

 

Use the Navigation Palette - click in the active layer column to switch layers, or...

Use Cmd (Ctrl)-Arrow-Up/Down keys to move up and down the layer stack.

 

Either way it always helps to have the Nav Palette open so you can always see where you are going 🙂

that ConnectCAD 2020 works nicely with Vectorworks Project Sharing? This is a happy by-product of our transition to Vectorworks SDK!

So when you have more than one designer working on your project, set it up for Project Sharing and you can all work together on the same file.

 

Give it a try!

that double-clicking with the Connect tool makes the "next connection"? Say you're connecting some sockets on device A to device B. You take the Connect tool and draw your first Circuit joining the topmost socket on A to the corresponding one on B. Your Circuit remains selected after creation - here's why. If you now want a similar shape of Circuit from the socket below, just double-click it.

 

This is the 2020 version of the old Connect Next command. And it's even better than before - it's smart about signal types too. So start double-clicking and save yourself time!
