    Hierarchy and Searching Reply

    My lab has avoided hierarchal designs due to historical problems encountered when doing design reviews. Since we don't buy enough licenses for everyone involved in a design review of a board to use, we rely on PDF files. They tell me that the hierarchy using PDF makes it very difficult to follow a net through levels of hierarchy.

    Wondered if anyone out there had a method which could get around these issues. Has 15.1/15.2 improved the PDF generation? Are there free schematic viewer tools like the free layout viewer tools? Any other tricks?

    I have use hierarchy with great success in past positions, and would be loathe to loose it now.

    Thanks, John Hutton

    The cross-referencer tool allows the user to generate a flattened schematic view of the design. This view can also be fully cross referenced using flag bodies to add tags to allow full navigation through a hierarchical design.

    After the schematic has been flattened the generated PDF can also be fully searchable.
