    Orcad 16.6 back annotate creates underlines on Reference Designators Reply

    Does anyone know how to remove all the underlines from my ref designators in my schematic.  I performed a back annotate and noticed this showed up as some new 'user modified' feature for tracking ref des changes.  But I can't seem to find out how to remove the underlines?

     

    Thanks

    With the 16.6 hotfix 1 installed, there is an option at "Accessories -> Cadence TCL/TK utilities -> Utilities -> Extended Preferences -> Schematic -> Display Underscrore on User Assigned Part References" to control the display of this behavior.

    Using this option, you can select it to not display on screen as well as print.

    If you would like to selectively hide the underline for any specific part reference, i.e. to unset the underline for a specific part reference, you can select the part (instance) on schematic, then from the RMB (Right Mouse Button) menu, select "User Assigned Part Reference -> Unset".

    Thanks for this, hmkr.  This has been driving me nuts for a while.  I thought the underlined part reference meant that I did something wrong when I changed the annotation.  I turned that feature off, and now it's all back to normal.

    I tried to follow your instruction above up to ""Accessories -> Cadence TCL/TK utilities -> Utilities -> Extended Preferences -> Schematic ->" and then I don't have the option for " Display Underscrore on User Assigned Part References".

    I have 16.6 but I'm not sure about the hotfix. Do you think this is the result of hotfix not being installed?

    We can't get the hot fix installed for weeks per IT backlog, is there any other way to remove this underline?

    I found a way to remove them until we get the hotfix, I saved the file back to 16.2 and it removed them so we could proceed.
