Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to access the Configure Swapping Information in Components dialog, listing all components used in the design (or library), with their current swap settings. From here, you can quickly set up swapping attributes across the components in your library/design.
This command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor, Schematic Library Editor, and PCB Editor, as follows:
- Schematic Editor/Schematic Library Editor - by choosing the Tools » Configure Pin Swapping command from the main menus.
- PCB Editor - by choosing the Tools » Pin/Part Swapping » Configure command from the main menus.
After launching the command, the Configure Swapping Information in Components dialog will appear. Use the dialog to quickly define swapping across components. The dialog includes a powerful right-click menu, making it very easy to quickly copy the settings from one component to another, or enable/disable multiple components in a single click. In addition, double-clicking on a component in the dialog will open the Configure Pin Swapping dialog for that component, where you can define the swap group settings for pins, differential pairs, and subparts with more control.
When accessed from the PCB Editor, the dialog includes additional columns for enabling/disabling swapping on each component on the board.
- Changes made in the Configure Pin Swapping dialog are immediately applied to the schematic components regardless of which editor was active when the command was launched.
- In the PCB Editor, to enable or disable pin and/or part swapping for a specific PCB component, double-click on the component (or click once to select it and press F11) to access the Properties panel. Options to enable/disable pin/part swapping can be found in the Swapping Options section.
