I am trying to use device families on my schematics. When I place symbols on my drawing that are linked to a family, it appears like symbols associated with the family are being duplicated. When I select the symbol that I just placed (and utilized info from a device family) the extra symbols are also being highlighted.
can you please check family, in the family for cross-reference which symbol you have assigned.
when you place parent symbol from the family, it might be showing cross-reference symbol or when you place child symbols from the same family, then you will get to see parent symbol to visualize the parent symbol and child symbols which are linked with each other. example show below.
you turn ON and OFF of displaying cross-reference symbol by selecting parent symbol and child symbol by clicking on "show cross-reference" command.as shown below.
