I am running simulations in ADE XL (version 6.1.5-64b.500.132), and I have the schematic open in a second window. Usually I have to descend several levels down into the schematic hierarchy to find the circuit I'm interested in. When I ask ADE XL to annotate DC node voltages, or an operating point or whatever, then it displays those values on the schematic, but it also goes all the way back up the schematic hierarchy. That's quite inconvenient, because now I have to descend all the way back down to the circuit I was working on.
The same thing also happens when I choose one of the "print" options (like "print DC operating point"), or a "direct plot" option. Is there a way to keep the schematic at its current level of hierarchy when using these functions?
Not really. It's a known issue. In IC616 this is a lot better behaved - although there are still a couple of places where it pops up to the top again. If you find remaining situations when you move to IC616 that still do this, please report them to customer support.
The annotation capability has had a major overhaul in IC616 and has a lot of new functionality to address long-standing limitations. Still a few things to be added, but the framework is now there to allow us to innovate.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Ok, thanks. It's just a little annoyance, but it's been bugging me for years now, so I'm glad to hear it should be fixed in the next version :-)
