Custom Symbol Primitives Not Included In Search Filter


Commonly used ‘Pin Left’ and ‘Pin Right’ in Custom Symbols → Symbol Primitives don’t appear when “pin” is used in the search filter. Also I can’t add Pin Left etc. to my favorites.

Is there a reason for that please?

Thank you.

Hello kier:
I wanted to let you know that I have forwarded your questions to our experts in Scheme-it and I will post to you as soon as I have a reply.

Hi @kier - The Symbol Primitive components are designed to be used as pins for the “bodies” in the Symbol Primitive section as a method of building custom symbols on the canvas. Because of this they are not able to be flagged as a favorite since you will not be able to add them to a canvas without a “body” placed first. We recommend using our updated Symbol Builder tool for any new custom symbols instead of the Symbol Primitive components.

With that in mind, There are other pins available in the Schematic Symbol > Port menu that are able to be saved as favorites and to be used as individual pins in your schematic.

I hope this helps.
