Parent page: Schematic Objects
The Sheet Symbol File Name is a non-electrical child object of an electrical design primitive. It provides the link between the sheet symbol and the schematic sub-sheet that the symbol represents.
The Sheet Symbol File Name is automatically placed when the parent sheet symbol object is placed.
This method of editing allows you to select a sheet symbol file Name object directly in the workspace and change its location graphically. Sheet symbol file Names can only be adjusted with respect to their size by changing the size of the Font in the Properties panel. As such, editing handles are not available when the sheet symbol file name object is selected.
Press the Spacebar to rotate the file name. Rotation is counterclockwise in increments of 90°.
The following methods of non-graphical editing are available:

This method of editing uses the associated Parameter dialog and the Properties panel mode to modify the properties of a sheet symbol file name object.
After placement, the Parameter dialog can be accessed by:
During placement, the Parameter mode of the Properties panel can be accessed by pressing the Tab key. Once the sheet symbol is placed, all options appear.
After placement, the Parameter mode of the Properties panel can be accessed in one of the following ways:
The Properties panel supports multiple object editing, where the property settings that are identical in all currently selected objects may be modified. When multiples of the same object type are selected manually, via the Find Similar Objects dialog or through a Filter or List panel, a Properties panel field entry that is not shown as an asterisk (
*) may be edited for all selected objects.
A List panel allows you to display design objects from one or more documents in tabular format, enabling quick inspection and modification of object attributes. Used in conjunction with appropriate filtering - by using the applicable Filter panel, or the Find Similar Objects dialog - it enables the display of just those objects falling under the scope of the active filter – allowing you to target and edit multiple design objects with greater accuracy and efficiency.
