Re: I am having trouble with the JUMPER layer

Use the Create/Edit Wire Type dialog and add a wire type called JUMPER. Set it for no wire numbering. You can only do this in versions 2010 and 2011. The JUMPER wire type will act as a wire in all respects but it will not receive a number assignment.

I have a wire layer setup as indicated, labeled as JUMPER, and went to the project properties, under Wire numbers, and clicked Exclude and added JUMPER. Is that correct? I'm using 2012 ACADE, but when i have other wire layers connected to the jumper, they take the same wire number.
