Thank you all for the clear and valid replies -
The answer to using jumpers does lie in the ability to anchor one starting point … then using the cursor to find the “rotate” corner and click and drag to stretch. Just what I was looking for. Do you all think I still need single header pads at each end of the jumper, or does the jumper create a hole and pad at the end of the trace to which it is attached? Or, simply use a short trace or a bend point and attach the jumper at that point?
I will be using Fritzing’s lab to create the prototype PCB’s. I assume that the lab will have seen this before. Perhaps when I create the files to send, the pads and traces will be easy for me to see.
Your comment of the “short” to ground … yes, I saw that last night, and have corrected the problem. The voltages of all the sensors is within the 5 Vdc power supply that I am using in the circuit. I did not feel it was necessary to pull from the VCC at 3.5 Vdc to power the remote sensors. All of the internal IO pins and any LEDs will of course be at the reduced 3.5 Vdc.
Getting ready to send final files to Fritzing. Anyone want to see the last edits?
Thanks again to all three of you for the clear responses … Old Grey, sublimeartistry, and Peter. Your comments seem to be very well respected.
