    How to change the default display format for parts? Reply

    Hello

    I'm trying to get Orcad Capture 16.5 to stop showing the part reference and element label by default. Especially in a large design, this presents a problem. Can you help me?

    There is a way to do this on a global basis. In your schematic go to the tool bar and select options preferences. Change the color of your part reference or part value to be the same as your "Background" color and those items will disappear. I use a background color of black so setting the reference dez etc to black works fairly good.

    Not the most perfect solution in the world but it should work for you.

    Thanks Scott
