The Component Grouping dialog


The Component Grouping dialog allows you to group components by any parameter. 


The dialog is accessed from the schematic editor by choosing Design » Make Schematic Library from the main menus. If there are components with the same library reference but a different internal structure, this dialog will open.


  • Parameter Name - column of currently available parameters that can be used for grouping.
  • Check - this column displays a checkbox for each available parameter. Only the checked parameters are used to group components.
  • Defaults - click to restore the dialog to installation defaults.
