During translations, sometimes it is decided that a property's values should be mapped to a new property in DxDesigner. A good example is copying a corporate part number to Part Number.

 

This script will loop through a schematic and copy the values from one property to another. If the destination property is not found, the script will create the property on the schematic part and update the value. There is an option to also remove the old property, if the property is no longer needed.

 

Adding filters will instruct the script to skip over any source property that has a value of what is defined in the filter. For multiple filters, add one string per each line.

 

Example:

 

DxDesigner

Expedition

Library Manager
