The Choose Document to Reference dialog.

Summary

This dialog allows the designer to choose the target schematic document that is to be referenced by the sheet symbol whose properties are currently being defined.

Access

The dialog is accessed from within the Sheet Symbol dialog, by clicking the  button associated to the Filename field.

Press Tab while placing a sheet symbol or double-click on a placed sheet symbol to access the Sheet Symbol dialog.

Options/Controls

The main area of the dialog lists all candidate schematic documents for the project, that can validly be used as the target reference sub-sheet for the sheet symbol. Each document is listed in terms of its name, and path to the folder in which it resides.

Simply click on an entry to select the required document.

The sheet on which the sheet symbol is placed will not be listed. This is because a sheet symbol cannot reference the same sheet on which it is itself placed.
