    Changing Schematic Editor Search assistant's truncation limit Reply

    Hi all,

    I'm using the "Search" assistant in Schematic Editor. When my query returns too many matches, the Results panel shows only part of them (1000 matches, I think), and "Results truncated" is displayed at the end. Is it possible to change the truncation limit? I tried searching Cadence Support, but unsuccessfully.

    I'm running IC6.1.5 ISR14, if it matters.

    Regards,
    Dmitry

    Dmitry,

    There are no user controls over this - it's fixed at 1000. This is because there are some performance limitations in the UI if there are too many results. There's a CCR, 663654, to address the performance issues, but it's not been prioritized.

    What are you trying to do that results in so many hits in a schematic?

    Kind Regards,

    Andrew.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for a quick reply and sorry for the delay (I was having problems with my PC...)

    I just had some (Calibre) extracted view with several thousands of transistors (and a lot of parasitic elements, of course), and I wanted to remove a user-defined parameter from the transistors of a certain type. I wanted to search for the appropriate transistor master name, select all found instances and remove the parameter using Preperty Editor assistant.

    Neverthless, I have already solved this by including sub-block names into the seach, which limited the number of matches to less than 1000 for each search. I had previously found that Property Editor's limit is configurable using oiMaxSelections variable, and wondered whether the Seach assistant's limit is configurable too.

    Regards,
    Dmitry
