Mechanical symbols represent physical objects that you can place in your board design and are not part of the netlist. One of the important mechanical symbols is the mounting hole. Create and define a new mounting hole symbol and place the mounting holes to your design.

It is always a good idea to run a Design Rule Check (DRC) before generating a netlist. The schematic DRC will check your design for design rule violations and place error markers on your schematic design. Select the rules you would like to check and generate a DRC report.

Performing an annotation chronologically renumbers the part references in your schematic design from top to bottom to ensure each component is uniquely defined. You can choose to annotate your entire design automatically or only partially annotate the components in your design.
