Convert Device Sheet to Schematic Sheet

Modified by Phil Loughhead on Jun 16, 2017


The Convert Device Sheet to Schematic Sheet dialog.

SUMMARY

This dialog allows designers to convert device sheets to schematic sheets.

ACCESS

The dialog can be accessed from the Sch Editor in the following ways:

  • Right-click on a device sheet symbol and select Refactor » Convert Selected Device Sheet to Schematic Sheet from the context menu.
  • From the toolbar, select Edit » Refactor » Convert Selected Device Sheet to Schematic Sheet.

OPTIONS/CONTROLS

Target Schematic Sheet Location - By default, the new Schematic Sheet is added to the current project. Click on the  button at the end of this field to choose a different target location for the new schematic sheet.

Mode

  • Create schematic sheet from device sheet and update all relevant sheet symbols in the current project - Choose this option to convert the currently selected device sheet symbol to a sheet symbol and create a schematic sheet in the target location. All relevant sheet symbols in the current project are updated. This option is enabled by default.
  • Create schematic sheet from device sheet and update only the current sheet symbol - Choose this option to convert the currently selected device sheet symbol to a sheet symbol and create a new schematic sheet in the target location. The current sheet symbol is updated only. This option is disabled by default.

Additional Options

  • Compile projects(s) after conversion - Enable this option to compile the project after the device sheet is converted. If you have converted sheets in your workspace, all projects in the current workspace will be compiled. This option is disabled by default.

Your last selection for this compile option is remembered so if you change the Compile setting from the default, the new Compile setting is remembered the next time you invoke the dialog.
