    How to add multiple via's to a single pin

    falco_arvoo

      Hello all,

       

      I've been running into this quite a while now, sometimes I get it working, sometimes I don't. I'm working with PADS Professional VX2.3 update 10. My problem is the following:

       

      I want to add multiple via's to a single smd pin, for example with power/gnd pads needing the extra ampere capacity. However, when trying to do so, I am allowed to put the 2nd via, but the previous via connection gets undone. I've added a short example video to this post showing the problem.

       

      I checked the following:

       

      Editor control -> route -> vias & fanouts -> Allow one more via per smd pin

      This seems still like a very weird option to me, but doesn't seem to do anything anyway

       

      Editor control -> route -> vias & fanouts -> Max pins/plane fanout via: x

      Tried multiple numbers, again doesn't seem to do anything

       

      I guess it would be a simple setting somewhere, but I just can't seem to find it..

       

      Thanks in advance,
