    How to Freeze ref des values

    jim_kirchman

      I would like to manually set a reference designator and have it stay there. What happens is ... when I package the ref des may be changed because it's used on another page.

       

      Is the there a way to freeze ref des (I'd like to freeze the whole page.).

       

      Thanks

      Jim

          Hi Jim,

           

          Typically the way this is done is to place the "Frozen Package" property on the symbol with a value of "Fix" (i.e., Frozen Package=Fix). To perform this on an entire sheet of schematics you would set your selection filter to "Symbols" only then Area Select the entire sheet of logic (only the symbols should be selected because of the filter), then RMB select the Properties cmd on the context menu and add the above mentioned property to all the symbols that you have selected. Hope this helps!

           

          Best Regards,
