    Loading all components from bottom up hierarchical designed schematic for PCB layout

    seouljoe2017

      I'm following the button up design hierarchic which is suggested in the Youtube video "Managing Hierarchy Part 2" which I link here: Managing Hierarchy Part 2 - YouTube

       

      I generate a symbol for each block and then add the symbols in my main schematic where I placed the MCU.

      The problem I'm facing is during the layout stage. After I package the project and start the PCB layout, only the parts from the main schematic, "Schematic 1" are loaded.

      I was wondering how I can load ALL the components from all Blocks too, e.g., BLE, FLash, etc., into my board for placement. Why are the blocks not being loaded into the layout program?
