I'm making a customized symbol in Capture, but having problem hiding the pin name while showing the pin itself. What I'm trying to do is making a symbol similar to the VCC/CAPSYM that is included in OrCAD Capture, in which I have the option to display or to hide the name (VCC). For some reason, I'm not able to do this in my own symbol. If I change the pin type to POWER, I can hide the pin and the name at the same time, however, it's not what I want. I want to hide/show the pin Name instead of the pin itself.
Thanks for answering my question.
You can generally turn pin name and number visibility on/off on a schematic symbol by doing the following
1. open the part in the symbol editor (double click it inside the olb file)
2. Either use Options, part properties or double click without hitting anything
3. Locate the Pin Names Visible property and set it to false.
have you tried to use options -> part properties ->pin names visible = FALSE in capture ?
I'm sorry Ole! You won by 4 minutes :)
Yes, that works.
Thanks a lot.
Great explanation, thanks! I had this question, too.
