    Tools -> Assign Reference Designators

    nadovicc

      I have a hierarchical schematic, structure as follows

       

      Interfaces

          VCO_Top

              V2I

              Mirrors

              WindowFF

       

      I want to automatically assign reference designators to U?, C?, etc REFDES properties.

      I click Tools -> PCB Interface -> Assign Reference Designators.

       

      I get the error

       

        Error 5709:

        Could not open schematic Interfaces

       

      Note that "Interfaces" is the name of my root level schematic. If I look at the Interfaces.err file it says

       

        viewbase: Error 222: Error - Could not find WIR file INTERFACES.1.

       

      I get a similar error if I choose instead Create Netlist for Layout. The CFG file is the standard Pads94.cfg

       

      I see no errors when running Tools -> DxDesignerDiagnostics

       

      What does this mean? How do I fix it?
