The following pre-packaged resources, derived from this base command, are available:


Applied Parameters: Axis=X|ObjectKind=SheetSymbol

Summary

This command is used to flip one or more selected sheet symbols along the X-axis.

Access

With the required sheet symbol(s) selected in the main design workspace, this command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Edit » Move » Flip Selected Sheet Symbols Along X command from the main menus.
  • Locating and using the Flip Selected Sheet Symbols Along X command on the Active Bar.
If the command has been recently used from the Active Bar, it will become the active/visible button. Where other commands are available, this is indicated by a triangle at the bottom-right corner of the button. Click and hold on the active button to access a menu of all associated commands for that grouping.

Use

First, ensure that the required sheet symbol(s) to be flipped is selected in the main design workspace.

After launching the command, what happens next is determined by the number of sheet symbols selected:

  • Single Sheet Symbol - the sheet entries associated with the symbol will be swapped to the opposite side of the symbol (in the horizontal plane) - those on the left will be repositioned on the right and vice-versa.
  • Multiple Sheet Symbols - the symbols will be flipped about an imaginary vertical line which is located mid-way between the bounding extents of the symbols in the selection. The sheet entries associated with each symbol will be swapped to the opposite side of the symbol (in the horizontal plane) - those on the left will be repositioned on the right and vice-versa.

The I/O Type of sheet entries is not altered.

Tips

  1. If a sheet symbol is locked, you will be prompted with a confirmation dialog alerting you to this and asking if you want to continue. However, if a sheet entry is locked, it will still be flipped to the opposite side of its parent sheet symbol (i.e. the lock is ignored).


Applied Parameters: ContextSensitive=True|Axis=X|ObjectKind=SheetSymbol

Summary

This command is used to flip one or more sheet symbols along the X-axis.

Access

This command is accessed in the Schematic Editor, by:

  • Right-clicking over a placed sheet symbol (not selected) then choosing the Sheet Symbol Actions » Flip Sheet Symbol Along X command from the context menu.
  • Right-clicking over a selected sheet symbol (or a sheet symbol that is part of a group of selected sheet symbols) then choosing the Sheet Symbol Actions » Flip Selected Sheet Symbols Along X command from the context menu.

Use

First, ensure that the cursor is positioned over the required sheet symbol (if flipping a single symbol), or that the required sheet symbols to be flipped are selected (if flipping multiple symbols), and that the cursor is positioned over one of the symbols in the selection.

After launching the command, what happens next is determined by the number of sheet symbols involved:

  • Single Sheet Symbol - the sheet entries associated with the symbol will be swapped to the opposite side of the symbol (in the horizontal plane) - those on the left will be repositioned on the right and vice-versa.
  • Multiple Sheet Symbols - the symbols will be flipped about an imaginary vertical line which is located mid-way between the bounding extents of the symbols in the selection. The sheet entries associated with each symbol will be swapped to the opposite side of the symbol (in the horizontal plane) - those on the left will be repositioned on the right and vice-versa.

Applied Parameters: Axis=Y|ObjectKind=SheetSymbol

Summary

This command is used to flip one or more selected sheet symbols along the Y-axis.

Access

With the required sheet symbol(s) selected in the main design workspace, this command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Edit » Move » Flip Selected Sheet Symbols Along Y command from the main menus.
  • Locating and using the Flip Selected Sheet Symbols Along Y command on the Active Bar.

After launching the command, what happens next is determined by the number of sheet symbols selected:

  • Single Sheet Symbol - the sheet entries associated with the symbol will be swapped to the opposite side of the symbol (in the vertical plane) - those at the top will be repositioned at the bottom and vice-versa.
  • Multiple Sheet Symbols - the symbols will be flipped about an imaginary horizontal line which is located mid-way between the bounding extents of the symbols in the selection. The sheet entries associated with each symbol will be swapped to the opposite side of the symbol (in the vertical plane) - those at the top will be repositioned at the bottom and vice-versa.
