How does one create two instances of one border property?
Assuming you are talking about sheet borders in PADS DX Designer then this depends on the type of property. For the auto-evaluated properties, those beginning with @ we don't currently support multiple instances. For regular properties set them as multiple in the property definition file by setting the 'Instances allowed' key to multiple.
If you are asking about this in PADS layout then somebody else will need to answer.
It is a regular property and I changed "Instances allowed" to Multiple.
In the schematic, I made a copy (ctrl+c, ctrl+v) of the property in another location. When updating the border properies in Setup->Settings->Borders and Zones->Border Properties, It does not update both instances of the variable.
How does one properly create another instance?
To be clear, I am trying to have one variable updated automatically in two different locations on the schematic
I have since tested this and it seems that there is also an issue with regular properties and multiple values - so we don't support this at the moment.
