    How to automatically sort/rename parts in schematic? Reply

    Hello everyone!

    I am new here, so if this isn't the right section to ask, I'm sorry, just correct me.

     I am using Orcad Capture and PSPICE to simulate circuits for my school project. Because of frequent modifications in schematic, the part names aren't ordered in the signal way from input to output, but they are ordered chronologically by the time when I added them (for example, when I added some circuit to the schematic behind the input buffer, the input coupling capacitor before buffer is named C1, but the second coupling capacitor before the new added circuit is C15). Is there any function in Capture, that can automatically change the part names in order from input to output (left to right)?

     Thanks for answers

    You can use Tools>Annotate menu and select the Annotation type "Left-Right" and "Unconditional reference update" selected under Action section.

    Select the DSN entry in the Project Manager window, Tools>Annotate, select "Uncondtional" and OK should do it. That will re-annotate the design in horizontal bands from top left to bottom right.
