    Editing a wire with Virtuoso Schematic Reply

    Hi,

    I know it seems to be simple, but I can't change the name of wires in my schematic. I've tried to select the wire or the value of the name name and edit, but each time I've tried to change it, the name is not editable.

    How could I fix that ?

     

    Thanks in advance for your time.

     

    Regards, Laurent

    Hi Laurent,

    In a schematic a wire either derives a name from a schematic pin it is connected to, or from a label placed on the wire.  For the latter, edit the label, or if the name was a default name (e.g. "net1") then add a label to override it. If the wire is connected to a pin then the pin name would need to change to change the wire name (unless we are talking about a bus pin, in which case you can tap off specific sections by adding an appropriate name, e.g. pin is A<7:0> and a wire segment could be named A<3:0> as an example).

    Hopefully this answers your question?

    Regards,

    Lawrence.
