    Question regarding a symbol in PADS Layout




      I have a design I am working on and I am getting a strange symbol on pads in different locations and I could not find a reference to this symbol in the help documentation.  I was hoping someone could tell me what the below marking indicates:

          Hi Adam


          It is a testpoint symbol.

          For some reason the pad is marked as a testpoint.


          You can set this by first select the pad. RMB > Properties.

          In the Pin Properties dialog there is a 'Test point' checbox you can enable/disable.


          Another way is just to hide the symbols.

          This can be done in 'Tools > Options > Routing > General'

          In this dialog you can enable/disable the 'Show test points' checkbox.
