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


Applied Parameters: Action=WholeProject

Summary

This command is used to synchronize the sheet entries and sub-sheet ports for all sheet symbols in the active project.

Access

This command is accessed in the Schematic Editor, by choosing the Design » Synchronize Sheet Entries and Ports command from the main menus. There is no need to select any sheet symbols prior to launching this command.

Use

After launching the command, the Synchronize Ports To Sheet Entries dialog will appear. A separate tab is presented for each sheet symbol in the design. Use the dialog to ensure that all sheet entries on a sheet symbol, are matched to ports on the referenced child sheet below. A sheet symbol is said to be 'synchronized' with its referenced child sheet if all of its sheet entries match the corresponding ports on that sub-sheet – both by Name and I/O Type.

Tips

  1. Note that any changes made in the dialog take effect immediately. A change cannot be undone through the dialog. You will need to use the document's Undo feature to unwind a change.
