In asking this question earlier, it was mentioned that I could handle the exceptions via the board editor. I am not sure how to do that so I am going to try and ask the question again and see what help I can get to either manually make changes or find settings that work.

BACKGROUND OF PROBLEM: I have a single sided PCB that also requires top-side jumpers. In some instances those top-side jumpers have a relationship where Point-A is routed to Point-B and then from Point-B the trace continues to Point-C. This creates a physical challenge in soldering as Point-B in this scenario will require two wires to be inserted into it (one whose other end terminates at Point-A and another whose other end terminates at Point-C). Obviously this is not ideal. What the soldering operator would much prefer is to have each top-side jumper be a single Point-to-point connection.

QUESTION: Are there any specific settings of the DRC or Autorouter to acheive what I am looking for? If not, do you have some guidance as to how to manually modify an autorouted PCB's top side traces to accomplish this task?

Thanks.

Gordon
