#1

http://vimeo.com/103196314

This video takes you step-by-step through the parts creation and schematic process for a BluetoothLE module for IoT applications. Here are detailed timestamps:

Create a new project (1:05)

UI walkthrough: Project page (1:58)

Add collaborators to your design (3:23)

Open your design in the Upverter editor (4:02)

UI walkthrough: Schematic editor (4:17)

Toggle between the schematic and layout editor (4:48)

Set your colour theme (5:12)

Add a component (from the library) to your schematic (7:00)

Create a new component in the library (10:42)

Pin list .CSV import into Part Editor (17:09)

How to zoom (20:46)

How to pan/move the design view (20:48)

Pro tip: Add a thermal pad to a part’s schematic symbol (21:32)

Pro tip: Make the part number visible a part’s schematic symbol (23:22)

UI walkthrough: Part editor, schematic symbol (23:53)

UI walkthrough: Part editor, footprint (26:09)

Create a footprint with the footprint generator (26:50)

Pro tip: Navigating the schematic editor (38:32)

Connect parts together (39:23)

Using flags to make indirect connections (39:59)

Indicate no-connected / floating pins (42:04)

Display pin names/numbers (44:03)

Connect pins to power (45:56)

Connect pins to ground (46:27)

Collaborate with other designers (47:42)

Add decoupling capacitors and generics (49:39)

Using named net stubs to make indirect connections (57:45)

Pro tip: Move components using arrow keys (1:00:26)

Depopulate (DNP) a component (1:02:06)

Dragging pins in the component editor is painful

Thanks foir breaking out each section that is especially useful when you go back after a first view and cherry pick the stuff you need a quick review on.
