The Schematic Print Properties dialog

Summary

The Schematic Print Properties dialog provides controls to configure more advanced properties when printing schematic documents. It provides the ability to control whether certain design objects are included on prints or not.

Access

The dialog is accessed in the following ways:

  • Click the Advanced button in the Schematic Print Properties version of the Page Setup dialog.
    The Page Setup dialog is accessed by clicking File » Page Setup or by right-clicking on the entry for a schematic document in the Projects panel then selecting Page Setup.
  • Right-click in the Print Preview dialog then select Configuration.
    The Print Preview dialog is accessed by clicking File » Print Preview or by right-clicking on the entry for a schematic document in the Projects panel then selecting Print Preview.
  • With the entry for Schematic Prints, OpenBus Prints, or FSM Prints selected on the Default Prints tab of the Project Options dialog, click Configure

Options/Controls

Drawings

Use these controls to configure the following objects' inclusion in the printed outputs:

  • No-ERC Markers with Symbols - disable/uncheck to exclude all No ERC markers from generated prints; enable/check to include No ERC markers. When this option is enabled, the sub-options are used to fine-tune the types of No ERC markers to be included in relation to their displayed symbol types: Thin Cross, Thick Cross, Small Cross, Checkbox, and Triangle.
  • Parameter Sets - check to include parameter sets in the printout.
  • Probes - check to include probes in the printout.
  • Blankets - check to include blankets in the printout.
  • Notes: - disable this option to exclude all note objects from generated prints; enable to include note objects. When this option is enabled, use Include collapsed notes to control whether all notes are drawn (enabled/checked) or only those notes that are fully expanded (disabled/unchecked).

Physical Name Expansion

Use the controls in this region to determine where the physical name expansion occurs. Choose from:

  • Entire Sheet - on the entire schematic sheet.
  • Specific Area - with this option enabled, the following controls become available:
    • Lower Left Corner X/Y - use these fields to define the X and Y coordinates of the bottom-left corner.
    • Upper Right Corner X/Y - use these fields to define the X and Y coordinates of the top-right corner.
    • Define - click to define the required area directly in the workspace. A crosshair will appear in the workspace; click to define the two diagonally-opposite corners of the area. After defining the two corners, the dialog reappears with the coordinates of your chosen locations filled into the respective fields.
