In the last few years OrCAD schematic added a feature where when a user edits the reference designator of a part it underlines it to show its been edited. I really wish it would not do this. To make the underlining go away I have to select the part, right click, chose User Assigned Reference, and then Unset. In part of my job I have to copy several pages of schematics and then change all the ref deses on all the copied pages. This User Assigned Reference is a major PITA, easily doubling the effort of my job.
I believe you are looking for this....In the extended preferences menu
Thank you Redwire. That is exactly what I was looking for.
