    Numbering component in hierarchical block Reply

    Good morning,

     

    I have an issue when designing hierarchical block with orcad capture 16.5 .

    I want to use hierarchical block because it help me to have a better view of the overall system. 

    The problem is when I use hierarchical blocks the numebring component of cadence does not increment automatically from one folder to antoher.

    For example: Let's say I have two folders (SCHEMATIC1 and SCHEMATIC 2) with one PAGE in each. I f I place two capacitors in the PAGE of SCHEMATIC1 and two other in the PAGE of SCHEMATIC2 I will have this numebring: C1 and C2 in SCHEMATIC1 and C1 and C2 in schematic. But the thing is, since it is a part of the same electronic design I rather want : C1 and C2 in SCHEMATIC1 and C3 and  C4 in SCHEMATIC2.

     

    How is it possible to tell orcad to increment automatically in all folders and not in each folders separately?

     

    Thank you for your help, I really need it.

    Select the DSN file in the Project Manager window and use Tools>Annotate with the Unconditional option to correctly reference the design once entered.
