How to change the number of jacks in a row

Here’s a question we just got: I’m using 48-way audio jackfields (patch panels). The jackfield tool dropdown has ony 24-ways. How do I change that?

Select the Jackfield tool and click on the tool settings icon


Click on the tool settings icon – it’s that “spanner” in the top-left above the drawing area.

Select the number of ways from the dropdown menu


Click Ok and you’re done. That’s all there is to it.

Now here’s another way


Go to the connectCAD settings menu.

Set up all your connector panel sizes


Go to the Panel Settings pane and select the sizes for all your panels. For more details on the other parts of this dialog see the User Guide.
