Recently we are up-to-date and we are using VX.2.2 now.

 

But with this Version, we have we got some problems concerning the creation of symbols respektively with the existing symbols if we invoke them.

 

1. The "Name"-Property is generally switched to visible althought it was switched to invisible the time before.

 

 

2. A property called "NAME_PLACEHOLDER" is placed atomatically to the symbol of type "pin" and "borders" and also switched to visible.

 

3. The Symbol "catch frame" can not modify by the symbol creator from now on. Thereby the Border-Symbol gets a "catch frame" about the hole symbol automatically (in the past, we placed a small rectangular in the lower left corner to prevent shoving the border in the schematic editor, if we mark a group of components). With the use of VX.2.2 is this no Problem. But if you open an older project based on e.g. VX.1, you can not shove a group of symbols because you will catch the border during the marking process of the symbols, you want to shove.

 

4. What is the correct definition of a "link"-Symbol and "hierarchical"-connector?

a) "link"-Symbol

We defined it as follow shown:

"Name"-property is switched to invisible. "NAME_PLACEHOLDER"-property is deleted.

But we get the following result in the schematic editor:

This is the result which is required:

b) "hierarchical"-connector

We defined it as follow shown:

"Name"-property is switched to visible and placed in the center of the symbol. At this place, the pin-name of the referenced block should be displayed.

"NAME_PLACEHOLDER"-property is deleted.

But we get the following result in the schematic editor:

This is the result which is required:

 

Thank you very much for your help.
