Sometimes I use a certain symbol for a device in a given mode, sometimes a different symbol. How can I make it so that I can choose which symbol to use when using Insert Symbol By Device ID and Insert Symbol By Part Number?
This method allows for choosing one of several symbols to use for a device in a given mode. If a single instance of a device is to be represented by multiple schematic symbols, use a Device Family.
After making changes, use Show Differences button to update the part number information in the project, if applicable.
Now when using Insert Symbol By Device ID to insert a symbol for a device with that part number assigned, a Select Symbol dialog will appear after the Place Symbol button is selected.
When using Insert Symbol By Part Number, the desired symbol can be selected in the "Select Symbol" area of the Insert Symbol By Part Number dialog before clicking the Place Symbol button.
