I have a pot (R8), as you can see, C6 capacitor is connected to its middle terminal, I have trouble implementing this in Orcad as it says that the negative terminal of the capacitor is connected to nowhere, I tried placing a No Connect, it didn't work, then connected it to GND and the error went away.

But is connecting that terminal to GND technically correct or it would distort the result?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you made the symbol yourself? Did you use the same grid as in your schematic? A grid mismatch is usually the reason for not being able to connect a component terminal in the schematic. \$\endgroup\$ – eeintech Jan 27 '20 at 14:44

Just press X (Not connected) or menu>place>no connect and click at the pin.
