Hi, I need to create a new capacitor symbol in Part Developer and I want the symbol to be like a circuit symbol (two horizontal lines plates and two vertical lines terminals), usually I would just go into symbol editor to change it after Generate Symbol(s). is there a better method to create the discrete components with circuit symbols?
Thanks in advance.
Using the Part Developer (PDV) Symbol Editor will work fine. You can also use Design Entry HDL (DEHDL) tool directly and draw the desired symbol graphics.
Thanks for the reply. The Symbol Editor is only available with PCB Libarian right?
or else we have to use DE HDL tool to draw directly.
Actually, the Symbol Editor is only available through the PCB Librarian Expert license (not the defaul/base Part Developer license). Yes, you can also use the DEHDL tool to draw the symbol directly.
