Storing common component properties

#1 Post by jgmdesigns » 30 Oct 2017, 22:31

Greets,

As an add-on to the request I had here:
http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11895

I tend to use a lot of the same parts, from the same vendor(s), and as such it would be a real benefit if there was a radio button feature in the component properties to be able to save the properties into a library. As well as a radio button to look up, and select the component and auto populate the properties from that library.

Currently I have an Excel spreadsheet where I do a Copy/Paste, but it is a time consuming ordeal

Cheers,
Jim

Hello Jim,

Thank you for the suggestion, we will consider them with our team.
You maybe know you can save existing components from your schematic to a component library in current version, as well as update components in the schematic from the library.
