I am very new to PCB Editor and I'm sure I will end up posting a fair amount of Forum questions. The first is that I am trying to do a manual place of components in the PCB Editor, and my tree view doesn't seem to be appearing properly. In all the examples I have seen, there are check boxes next to the reference designators. My tree view shows all the components, but there appears to be no way to select them as there are no check boxes in my view. If I highlight the refdes name and then click "Hide" to try to place the component, nothing happens.
It is worth noting that I am using version 16.3 on Windows 7. This has already produced a few bugs that needed correction. I assume this is the same situation. Any suggestions?
I have a similar problem to the OP. I am trying to place a mechanical symbol (mounting holes, which I have done before on this board and others) on a board where I have already placed and routedmy components.
Unfortunately, when I do Place-> Manual... like I did before, I get the same message in the command "Select elements to place using tree view.", but I can't see it!
I know the tree view its referring to, but I don't seem to be able to get that view to come up again, no matter what I do. Any suggestions?
