Assign or edit Values, Names, and Part Numbers for symbols


Q) How can I give values to my symbols?

  1. Click on the part and go to Part Properties
  2. Click on the check box to show the values/name you create.

Q) How can I create or edit the name of a selected component?

A) This will be the same process as listed above. Click in the part properties you can change the name of the part.

Q) I’m trying to label individual circuit lines (Nets). Is that possible?

A) Yes, just click on the net, then on your right under Net Properties, you can edit the net name, change the style, and color. Clicking on the text will allow you to change the font size, as shown…

Q) I want to add other text beyond the provided part attributes, can I do that?

A) You can add text anywhere, but know that it will not connect to a part and therefore will not transfer to your BOM when you export it. To add text, Click on Insert and then the text box, and you can move it where you wish.
