Defining Component Type Preferences for Altium NEXUS

Modified by Tania Mashkoory on Nov 7, 2020

The two iterations of the Data Management - Component Types page of the Preferences dialog; on the left, an iteration in which you are signed into an Altium 365 Workspace, and on the right, an iteration in which you are signed in to an on-premise self-managed server. 

Summary

The Data Management – Component Types page of the Preferences dialog provides controls to manage Component Types.

Access

The Data Management – Component Types page is part of the main Preferences dialog that is accessed by:

  • Clicking the  control in the upper-right corner of the work area then selecting the Component Types entry under the Data Management folder.
  • Clicking the  button in the Choose Component Type dialog.
  • From the Single Component Editor: When a component is open in the editor, select Type from the drop-down menu under the Advanced Settings options.
You must be logged into a server in order to access the information on this page.
If you do not have permission from your company to add, delete, or edit component types, you may still view the contents of this page, but will not have any rights to change its contents.

Options/Controls

Columns

  • Name - the name of the available Component Type parameter.
  • Template - lists the name(s) of each Component Type template, which will mirror the Component Type itself, or appear as a list of all the Component Types that have been merged if a merge has taken place. 
This column is only available for users connected to an Altium 365 Pro account.
  • Folder - lists the name in which the Component Type location resides. The Folder name entry will be replaced with an asterisk (*) if Component Types have been merged.

Options

  • Search Filter – enter text in the textbox by which to filter the Name list.
  • Templates – click to open the Edit template dialog to update and group existing components for changed templates. 
This column is only available for users connected to an Altium 365 Pro account.
  • Add – click to add a new Component Type in the list, which will be added with the default name New Type. Enter the new type name in the highlighted text box. The named type is automatically repositioned in the alphabetically ordered list. Use the drop-down to access these additional options:
    • Add Type - click to manually add a new Component Type entry.
    • Add Subtype - click to manually add a new Component Subtype, which will reside in the drop-down under a Component Type entry.
  • Remove – click to remove the selected Component Type. A confirmation dialog opens asking to confirm the deletion. Click Yes to confirm, No to cancel the deletion.
  • Drag and drop a Component Type entry to a new location to change its position in the hierarchy. An entry becomes a subtype of another when dropped onto it. Close and reopen the dialog to restore the alphabetical listing order if it has been disrupted.

Right-Click Menu

  • Rename - click to rename the Component Type or Subtype.
  • Move
    • Indent - click to indent the selected Component Type entry in the list hierarchy. An Indented entry will become a subtype of the next (lower) entry in the list.
    • Outdent - click to outdent the selected Component Type entry in the list hierarchy.
  • Remove - click to remove the selected Component Type. A confirmation dialog opens asking to confirm the deletion. Click Yes to confirm, No to cancel the deletion.
  • Merge - use to open the Merging dialog, where you may merge component types. When component types have been successfully merged, the folder column of those merged component types will be replaced with an asterisk (*).
