I made a mechanical symbol to represent a daughter board that will mount to my board. Simple rectangle with four mounting holes.
How do I get this symbol onto the circuit board? I have been through all of the menus in Editor and can't find anything that will allow me to bring a mechanical symbol into the board.
The paths are set. When I go to "place / manually" the window that comes up does not give me any option to load a symbol. Just shows the Active Class / Subclass selections. Tried all three modes.
One thing I did try was to assign the symbol to a dummy part I placed in Capture and load a new netlist. The selection to place the new part comes up when I invoke Place / Manually, but when selected I get an error that says it could not find the symbol. I know the sysmbol is there and it is located in the directory that Editor is pointing to (which is where all of the other parts on the board came from).
If it comes down to it I can just place the four mounting holes and draw a box around them, but I was hoping I could place this as a symbol to make it easier to move around the board as one entity.
