Hi everyone,

I hope someone can give me some guidance on this.

What is the best way to show how a symbol I put on my schematic will be excluded from the bom. Than how does someone pass that same information onto the Layout so the people designing the board know that the part is not going to be populated. If I understand some of this correctly by adding Parts list Exclude as an attribute to my symbol in the schematic it will not populate the bom. What is the next step in the process so when I package my design and pass it to the Layout person they will know which parts I will not be populating before or during the process of creating the PCB. I know they still need to put the part down on the board but is there a way to visually show that the part will not be populated?

Thanks for your help.
