Tech-Tip: DF 2019 New Feature: How to do checking the unconnected length


In DF 2019 we have new feature call “Checking the Unconnected Length”.

But this feature is not in the What’s New online help, since it is execute by simple macro syntax.

  1. Let open the DF 2019 online help and open the page:

Home > Guide to Applications > Checking Design Data > Checking the Unconnected Length

  • To find macro syntax click link “unclength-report”.

  • Copy & Paste the “( unclength-report )” to register it for one of User Command.

  • Add it under Quick Access Tool bar

  • Select some of un-connected nets and execute this command will get report of Unconnected Length.

  • Execute this command without select any of un-connected net will get this message.
