Tip of the Week: Toggle quickly between cellviews and editors
over 9 years ago
Pressing the "=" will toggle your current window between schematic and symbol views.
It seems handy for when you're editing a schematic to quickly change your symbol (for check and saves/cross view checks). If you have one symbol and one schematic it toggles. If you have multiple schematic views, it pops up a box to let you choose which one you want.
NOTE: If you use this tip while descended into a lower level of hierarchy, one drawback is that you will NOT be able to return back up the hierarchy after doing so. So it's best to open the desired cellview directly and work on it that way.
(Thanks to Dave K for discovering and passing along this tip!)
