My quesiton is the following, and is looking for any comments and experience. Originally posted in cdnusers.org by email@example.com
I am converting from Orcad( Design Entry CIS) to Concept( Design Entry HDL) for schematics entry. From Orcad, I am able to renumber the whole schematic, or set all reference designator to ?, so that I can update the entir design.
Now, in DE HDL, I see that reference designator started to be ?, and after I "export physical", I can then see the updated refdes like R1, R2..etc.
How do I setup so that I can see all the reference designator converted to ? such as R?, U?, D?..etc.
Also, I am looking for refdes reuse setup. For example, I have deleted R5 and R7, how to I make the later added refdes does not use R5 and R7, but continue from the largest value. Or, vise versa.
Your helps are much appreciated.
