The Library Component Rule Check dialog

Summary

The Library Component Rule Check dialog provides controls to run a component rule check in the schematic library editor that generates a text report for specified settings.

Access

From the schematic library editor, click Reports » Component Rule Check from the main menus.

Note that the Library Component Rule Check dialog will not be available when editing a Workspace component's new symbol created with the New command from the associated menu of the button below the Add Symbol section in the Component Editor in its Single Component Editing mode. Symbol validation can be performed as part of the Component Rule Check that is run when saving a component back to the Workspace, or when selecting the Tools » Component Rule Check command, from the main menus. Checks are configured on the Data Management – Component Rule Checks page of the Preferences dialog.

See the Running a Component Rule Check section of the Single Component Editing page to learn more.
