One way I can think of would be to open the netlist manager highlight the
All Nets class and just start keying through the nets listed.

The pins connected to it will be shown in the window and single pin nets are
very easy to spot there.

There may be a better way... but I don't have Protel installed... so I can't
check :(

Colby Siemer
