Hi to all,
how I can create a new property on symbols like "COMMENT", or "VOLTAGE " on nets ?
I use a netlist Telesis to import data so I'd like to have more info like Max Current for each net.
So I'd like to have:
MAXAMPERE 5; NETNAME
and then find the property MaxAmpere setted on Orcad DB (with property VOLTAGE this work fine).
on symbol, I'd like to have a property Note to storage the Designer Note about that component.....and so on
In ver 16.5 you can see comments added to the nets in the PCB editor. To do this try the following.
First highlight your net and right click on it and select "Properity Edit" There are a bunch of options to choose from but some handy properties to use would be "Comments" and voltage.
When you apply the properities to the net and hover over the net your new properties may not display because they need to be included in the data tips for the net.
Go to the tool bar and choose Setup > Data tip customization, When that window opens choose the object type to be Net. Check the name and value fields for the comment field. Next click on the advanced tab and scroll the list until you find the voltage field, check the name and value here also.
Click Ok to exit the menu. When you hover over the net you just added those properties to they should show up on the screen.
Hope this helps...
many thanks for your answer.
But I don't need to add existing properties, to net or symbol, but CREATE a new one like Property A...Property B... and so on.
I have to set some ASCII files, or something like that ?
Go to Setup pulldown and select Property Definitions. Type any name in the opened box. Click Apply. And lastly select the object types and value. That's it.
was easier than I expected !!!! :-))
Thanks a lot !!!!!
