The Data Management - Device Sheets page of the Preferences dialog

Summary

The Data Management – Device Sheets page of the Preferences dialog allows you to manage the device sheet related features.

Access

The Data Management – Device Sheets page is part of the main Preferences dialog that is accessed by clicking the  control in the upper-right corner of the workspace then selecting the Device Sheets entry under the Data Management folder.

Options/Controls

Device Sheet Folders

  • Device Sheet Folder List - lists all the added device sheet folder locations.
    • Include Sub-folders - check this option so all sheets in sub-folders also can be used as a device sheet.
  • Move Up - click to move the selected entry up in the list of device sheet folders.
  • Move Down - click to move the selected entry down in the list of device sheet folders.
  • Add - click to search for and select a folder containing device sheet files to add.
  • Remove - click to remove a selected device sheet folder from the list.

Options

  • Make Device Sheets In Projects Read-Only - disable this option to edit the objects on the device sheet that is associated by the device sheet symbol on a parent sheet. By default, this option is enabled meaning you cannot edit device sheets.
  • Display "Read Only" Watermark - enable this option so the device sheets will have 'Read Only' as the watermark for the background and to denote that device sheets are not editable.
If the Display "Read Only" Watermark option is enabled, you will be able to see quickly if the device sheet is read-only or editable. This option is accessible only when Make Device Sheets In Projects Read-Only is enabled.
  • Display Device Sheets Watermark - enable this option so the device sheets will have the recycle symbol as the watermark for the background.
