    CIS Database "Value" not visible Reply
    I've recently updated to 16.3. I have also recently created a new CIS database and now it seems that the "VALUE" from the database is not being placed on the schematic with the part by default. I can go into each instance of the part and correct this but this is not very efficient. How can I get "show VALUE" back by default?

     That is done in design entry CIS, you need to modify your .DBC file. Open design entry go to options>CIS Configuration. Then hit setup. Cycle through your tables and make sure the visibility colum is checked for the property you want shown by default in your schematic.

    Thank you for the response. I performed the actions you suggested. Now I am able to see the value on page; HOWEVER, the part cannot be seen. It appears its somewhere "off page". Any idea how to correct this?

     Yeah that is a bug i've seen before, use the arrow keys when you double click the part to place it, the part should snap in or eventually work its way back in.

     Open your schematic page. Go to Place -> Part. Click on Add Library. Select all your schematic libraries (*.OLB) and press on open. Restart Capture. Should help.
