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. Originally posted in cdnusers.org by JohnHutton
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
