    moving / displaying instance properties Reply

    Is there a way to move instance properties in the Virtuoso schematic editing environment?

    If I add a vpulse from the analogLib to a schematic, set the appopriate parameters such as the rise time, and set the "display" to "both", I get text in the schematic window "tr=..." next to the vpulse part.  There doesn't seem to be any way to select this text to move it.  With many components on a schematic (or many properties being displayed), not having control over label placement makes schematics very hard to read.  Other schematic editors I have used make moving these labels trivial.

    How do other folks deal with this problem?  Do I have to make my own part symbol to get control over these labels?  Or could I build some sort of "fake" component just for label display purposes -- i.e. a part that would exist only to display property values for other parts -- using Skill?

    The labels are not selectable by default, so that you don't keep getting them by mistake.

    Go to Edit->Select->Filter and in the "Instance Object" section at the bottom, turn on "label". You'll then be able to select and move any labels on the instance (such as those you describe, and also any "cdsParam()" type labels which may be on the device.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
