    Tools -> Assign Reference Designators


      I have a hierarchical schematic, structure as follows








      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?
