I’m new to Fritzing, but it all makes a lot of sense to me. Creating a new part seems to be a logical progression. But I’m having problems with getting some of my connectors to be available.
The board I’m creating has 61 connections: 28 terminal blocks, a 20-pin male header, two 2-pin headers, and the 5 (meaningful) connections from a DE-9 RS232 connection. There is some redundancy between the terminal blocks and the male header.
In the Breadboard view, Schematic view, or PCB view, I’ve been able to set SOME “internal connections,” but there are 12 of my terminal blocks that for whatever reason I am unable to select.
I have mapped a graphic to each of these connections in all three views. The corresponding connector in the Connectors list in each of these three views has a check by it. If I select a graphic in the list (with “Set Internal Connections” off), the appropriate graphic in the view selects as expected.
However if I enable “Set Internal Connections,” I cannot select any of these 12 terminal block connections to drag my connection.
Furthermore, when I open my part in the Fritzing application, I cannot drag a wire from any of these same terminal blocks, though I can from the other 16 (and, when I select one of the terminal blocks I had mapped an internal connection on to the 20-pin header, the appropriate header pin highlights – so that is working).
When I mouse over a working terminal block connection in the Fritzing application, it properly pops up the description specified for the connection in the Connectors view of the parts editor. When I mouse over one of the terminal block connections that isn’t working, I just get “Part 1”, the same text I get if I mouse over any other “dead” spot of the breadboard image.
The 12 connections that are not working are consecutive in the Connectors list, but there are connectors before and after them that are working perfectly well. I see nothing in the configuration that suggests any differences. (In my list of 61 connections, there are 6 that work, 12 that do not, and then 43 that do.)
FWIW, the SVG files for all three layers (Breadboard, Schematic, PCB) were generated from Inkscape (0.91), and I am using the Fritzing 0.9.2 on Windows 7/64-bit.
Can anybody provide any insight as to what I might be doing wrong?
