Schematic Editor object properties are definable options that specify the visual style, content and behavior of the placed object. The property settings for each type of object are defined in two different ways:
Pre-placement settings – most Sheet Entry object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog (access from the button at the top-right of the workspace). Select the object in the Primitive List to reveal its options on the right.
Post-placement settings – all Sheet Entry object properties are available for editing in the Sheet Entry dialog and the Properties panel when a placed Sheet Entry is selected in the workspace.
If the Double Click Runs Interactive Properties option is disabled (default) on the Schematic - Graphical Editing page of the Preferences dialog, when the primitive is double-clicked or you right-click on a selected primitive then choose Properties, the dialog will open. When the Double Click Runs Interactive Properties option is enabled, the Properties panel will open.
While the options are the same in the dialog and the panel, the order and placement of the options may differ slightly.
Name - the name of the sheet entry.
I/O Type - use the drop-down to select the I/O type for the sheet entry. Choices include: Unspecified, Output, Input, and Bidirectional.
Harness Type - use the drop-down to select the type of harness.
Font - use the controls to select the font, font size, font color, and add any desired special characteristics to the font, such as bold, italics, and underlining.
Kind - use the drop-down to select the kind of text. Choices include:
Block & Triangle
Border Color - click the color box to access controls to select the border color.
