LTspice: Connecting the Dots

Sometimes the simplest things elude us. Typically, after placing components in an LTspice schematic you select draw wires (F3), left click to start a wire, left click again to change direction or join, repeat until your circuit is complete and then right click to cancel. But did you know you can draw wires through components like resistors and the wire will automatically be cut so that the components are in series with the wire? Drawing a wire straight through several components is an easy way to connect components in series.
