I am unable to use cross referencing correctly with off/onsheet symbols.
As I can see it, there seems to be two different way of performing this task. The first way is using a somehow built-in tool found in "Setup / Settings / Project / Cross Reference", the second is using Cross references with Scout, as found in "Tools / Cross-references"
I have setup four different symbol of type "Anotate", one IN and one OUT for the "left", another IN and another OUT for the "right"
The first way (built-in tool found in "Setup / Settings / Project / Cross Reference"):
I set the symbols as being links in the settings. The links work, as I can navigate thru them using ALT+LMB:
I have set the cross reference origin and offset as found in Settings / Project / Cross Reference:
After this, I go in Tools / Update Other Objects / Check "Cross Reference", applied to the project. The problem I have with this way of doing cross referencing is that the offset of the annotation is set only for either the "LEFT" symbols or the "RIGHT" symbols; I have no way of telling both at the same time.
Correct "LEFT" symbols:
Incorrect "RIGHT" symbols:
Sweeping the user guides, I found another way which lets me specify a lot more options, with scout. See below.
The second way (Cross references with Scout, as found in "Tools / Cross-references"):
This way simply never works. The only revelant options I find in all this wizard is the "Record and Place Options":
The symbols I created are located in the partition "builtin", with the names "offsheet_left", "offsheet_right", "onsheet_left" and "onsheet_right".
I have also set the "Scope" to all the options I could see, just to be sure (both in "general options" and "Cross References Options", not sure what is the difference):
I make sure all my options are set by using "Modify Cross References Settings", as seen in #1. After this, I invoke the menu again and run scout with all schematics closed, as seen in #2. I press Start, as seen in #3:
Here is how my symbol look like:
What am I missing ? There's a lot of undocumented options with the "scout" cross referencing way. I am joining in this message my scout.ini file, in desesperate hope that somebody may be able to explain what is going on with this thing.
