Applied Parameters: ContextSensitive=True
This command is used to create a new schematic component symbol from the active schematic sheet, with the ports on that sheet becoming pins of the component.
This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor by right-clicking within the main design workspace - away from design objects - and choosing the Sheet Actions » Create Component From Sheet command, from the context menu.
After launching the command, the Symbol Options dialog will appear. Use this dialog to define the symbol height and width, the length of its pins, and a style for its pins, in relation to the ports on the source sheet.
After clicking OK in the dialog, the new component will be created, named after the schematic document, in a new Schematic Library document (Schlib1.SchLib). The library will be opened as the active document, and the new component presented as the active component within that library.
- If the source schematic sheet contains no ports, the new component will still be created, but there will be no symbol graphics.
