I am using Diptrace to route a board with over 1200 pins.
It's a fairly dense board with lots of SMD devices and I am using some resistor and capacitor networks, as well as dual MOSFETS and a large cable connector.
I have the luxury of using whatever connector on the cable I want, and the resistor and cap network pins are fairly interchangeable for me. For instance, they are all 10K resistors and I can exchange them for whatever other adjacent resistor or capacitor that is more easily routed.
So my question is when using Diptrace (or even in another package) to do the routing, is it acceptable or usual to just change the nets on the board when routing, or should I go back to the schematic and change the pins there and re-sync the layout with the schematic? Or is there a way to set Diptrace up so that any pin can be used as long as the part is the same? How do you handle this? Or is there another better technique?
