    Problem seeing parts in capsym.olb e.g. OFFPAGELEFT-R Reply

     I am following the "Example circuit creation" steps in the PSpice User Guide.

     I ran into a problem when I reached the point to place the OFFPAGELEFT-R symbol.

    I added the capsym.olb library but, unlike my success with the previous libraries, no parts show up in the Part List when CAPSYM is highlighted.

    I then tried searching for OFFPAGELEFT-R which led me to discover I can't find any parts with the search function. For example, I searched for D1N3940, which is already placed in my schematic, without success.

    In case it matters, my capture.ini settings are supplied by my CAD group.

    Power and Ground, Off-Page Connectors, Hierarchical Ports, Title Blocks are all Symbols NOT Parts. You need to select the appropriate Place option, rather than Place>Part to place symbols in the schematic.
