I am having trouble with power symbols. In sheet 1 everything is fine. In sheet 2, when I RMB and select Power synbol, The only option is the chassis gnd. Ican do ctrl tab and nothing happens. Any ideas?
Is this a DXD question or a PADS Logic question?
In PADS Logic you get Power Symbols with <Shift><space>. The symbols are defined as lines in one of your libraries. If you aren't using the standard libraries did you forget to copy the other symbols? Perhaps page 1 already had the symbols loaded from before the library set was changed.
I am using logic and I know about shift space. It is when I try to sequence through the different power symbols tha tI have a problem.
It has been a very long day I am headed home.
I misspoke; the power symbols need to be 'Logic' symbols in one of your libraries. In the library manager when you click 'Logic' and search for '*' you should see symbols like +12V, +5V, +5VA, -12V, -5V, CHGND.
I've never seen this page to page variation, so if my library explanation doesn't help I suggest a service request.
I located the Power symbols in the Pads common library. I removed all my libraries and left only the common library. Then I did a Tools/ Update from library and this fixed the problem. The "Net' symbols are actuall parts with multiple logic gates. They are listed at the beginning of the list with a $ prefix. For example: Power symbols are $PWR_SYMS. This was a frustrating experience, but I did learn how power symbols are set up. Thanks for your help.
