Using IC61 Schematic Editor.
In an open schematic I select "Edit -> Component Display" and on the Edit Component form I select 'parameter' for "Select Label" and under Parameter Labels I select 'library' for "Apply To" and then operating point and DC.
When I select a device from the schematic the form automatically switches to 'parameter' and 'full'. If I manually switch it back to 'operating point' there are no Display values listed.
Another user pointing to the same data with the same version of virtuoso is able to list several labels and select numerous OP parameters.
Why would this form behave differently for different users?
Not sure - check if the user has a labelDisplay.il file in the root of their design library - it may be that this is interfering with things.
The good news is that the Component Display form has had a major reimplementation in IC616, which gives much better (and more usable) functionality.
You could also try doing File->Refresh in the CIW to refresh the CDF from disk to reset everything before using the form.
Can you tell me where I can find this component display option in IC616? I don't see any componenet display option in edit menu of 616..
The annotations have been revamped in IC616. The important menu is now View->Annotations (or RMB->Annotations on a blank piece of the schematic, or over an instance). You can turn on many things easily from there, or there is the more comprehensive View->Annotations->Setup form which is much more powerful than the old Edit Component Display.
We still need to work out a few use model improvements, but the framework is there to allow you to do all sorts of things more effectively. For example, it now:
Thank you for the detailed response. Just tested some of the annotation features and it looks much better than 615. Its much easy to save and load annotations set up now, and best part is when you change the annotation settings for a design, the annotated data is updated at all levels of hierarchy!
