    find and replace multiple net expressions on a schematic Reply

    Hi there,

    I am trying to perform a "Find & Replace" of multiple netexpressions in Virtuoso Schematic

    I invoked Edit->Replace and in the drop down select box chose netexpr and in the text box typed my expression as

    [@nwell:%:vnwell]

    Strangely virtuoso schematic returns withwarning #1145, claiming no such objects were found. I can clearly see the object on screen.

    (I also tried the simpler option of replacing the label, which does a naive replacement of my net expression's label and abandons the expression part of it, thereby reducing it to a static label. This is not what I want.)

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Raj

    Raj,

    Assuming that you meant to have the default value as vnwell! rather than vnwell (the default has to be a global), then it would be:

    \[@nwell:%:vnwell!]

    The initial backslash is to escape the open square bracket which is used to character ranges in the shell-like pattern syntax.

    Or you could just use:

    *nwell*

    or *@nwell:* if you want to make it a bit more specific.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
