Add links to block diagram cover sheet

Question asked by tech_grunt on Oct 25, 2019


I am using PADS Designer VX.2.4.

On the first page of my 48-sheet flat design, I would like to build a graphical block diagram as an overview of the schematic.


I need to be able to:

1.) Create view-only components that do not get passed to layout OR interfere with the netlist,

2.) Create an attribute for the above mentioned components that allows the user to click on them and be driven to a       specified sheet.


I am using scout to accomplish a similar task; I add "arrows" (which are not physical components) to the nets, and after running scout it creates links to the accompanying net on another sheet.


Can someone point me in the correct direction for the above two tasks?

Thank you.
