What is it for?
Click this menu option if you want to swap two identical pins/pads of a symbol/package. Click the two pins or pads of the same symbol/package which you like to swap subsequently with M1. Both pins need to have the same non-zero swap number. In the schematic only the two pin numbers are exchanged. In the PCB the connected tracks are dragged along like rubber tracks.
Caution: Short cuts are possible.
