Hello,

I'm using Proteus 8.8 to design a 16-step sequencer, here's a vector file of the schematic that i want to implement on a PCB: https://svgshare.com/i/Vps.svg

Thing is all the ICs there have their GND and VCC pins hidden and connected virtually to ground and VCC respectively. As you can see on the vector file I linked, I've placed a couple of terminals and a fuse separated from the circuit, ending in an output labeled as "5V in".

So I would like all the ICs in my circuit to have their VCC pin connected to that 5V output when auto-routing on the PCB layout. Is there any way of doing it? Apart from drawing the tracks manually, of course. I am guessing it has something to do with the Hidden pins menu, the one on this picture:

However I don't really understand how all these nets work. I've checked the design explorer, and had a look at how the nets seem to be distributed, but I don't want to touch this too much without knowing what I'm doing.

I would like to know if it is possible to do what I'm trying to do, and if so, some guidance would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks in advance.

On "Design" menu, go to "Power Rail Configuration":

Got it, I replaced the output terminal next to the fuse with a power terminal and called it "V IN". Then went into the power rail configuration and added it to VCC/VDD. The PCB Layout is now autorouting the VCC pin from all the ICs directly to the fuse :)

In case anyone else has the same issue, the menu is now looking like this:

Thanks @andre_teprom (y)
