  1. In the Symbol Editor, open the required .sym file.

     You can only add connection points to symbols for which the assigned item type is Terminal or Pin.

  2. On the Actions tool bar, click Place Connection Points .

  3. On the Connection Points ribbon bar, from the Type list, select the type of connection point that you want to add: Connector or Jumper.

     By default, the first connection point is specified as being on the left side.  On the Connection Points ribbon bar, you can specify the right side for the first connection point if required.

  4. Click the mouse pointer at the position where you want to place the first connection point, then move the pointer to specify the required angle.

    • You can add more than one connection point on each terminal side if needed. If you do so, it is recommended that you place the points alongside one another or specify a different connection angle for each point.

    • Graphical symbol elements are defined on the Default layer and these elements determine the symbol boundaries.  Connection points are defined on the Connection layer, which means that placing connection points beyond the symbol boundaries does not affect the calculation of spacing between symbols in drawings.

  5. Click the mouse pointer to place the second connection point in a similar way.

  6. If you require, add wire macros to each connection point.  For details, see Add Wire Macros to Connection Points.

  7. On the tool bar, click Finish.

  8. Click File > Save.
