Parts: db9 pin number


#1

in the db9 male or female part
the pins 2 and 3 are missing and there is an extra pins 10 and 11.

My version of Fritzing and my operating system:

Version 0.9.3


Please also attach any files that help explaining this problem


#2

Can you not just rename the pin numbers? It is a 9 pin connector.


#3

As to male or female, it depends which one you chose (Inspector should tell you which it is if you click on the part or look at breadboard view) as both genders are available. As this is a Sparkfun part I assume they had some with very odd pin numbers since those are certainly not standard. However as smilliken pointed out it is pretty easy to change the pin numbers and most Sparkfun parts work well.

thank you for your answers
but how can i change the pin number


#5

Right-click on the part and Edit (new part editor), and along the top tabs go to connectors. Then Save as new part.

thank you Old_Grey
i did it, the numbers that i can change are right
you can see in the picture that id conector 1 exist but id conector 2 doesnt exist
can you check by yourself please

Opps, it’s the actual text in the svg drawing. If you hover over the connector it gives the correct #, but because it’s in the svg you have to manually edit the svg.

It looks like I’ll have to edit two views, is there anything else you want me to change.

thank you for your answer

how can i change the svg


#9

Whatever the connector ID is in the .fzp… the connector number when you hover over it in the views will be one number higher. i.e. if , then the pin number will be 28 in FZ views when hovered on… connector id=“connector0” is name=“Pin 1”… this was always confusing…
