Single-line and Multi-line Views
Initially the multiline and single-line views are added to the project sheet. In the E3.cable module, when dragging the component directly from the database, it is possible to insert the single-line view. When clicking with the right button and choosing the option "Place Single Pins", each pin present in the connector is added in a unique way, in a multiline view.
