Created: September 7, 2017 | Updated: September 7, 2017

The Edit Alternative Group dialog


The Edit Alternative Group dialog is used to split a component in the BOM document into groups. It can also be used to edit a previously added (split) group.


Right-click on a part in the BOM Catalog tab of a BomDoc, then click Split Item (Add Alternatives Group).


  • Alternative Group - enter the desired name for the group.
  • Components 
    • Include - enable the checkbox for each component you want to include in the group.
    • Designator - the name of the designator.
    • Current Group - if the component is currently part of a group, the name of the group is listed here. If the component does not currently belong to a group, this will be blank.
