Correct board side from Schematics ?

#1 Post by nissebola » 22 Mar 2012, 09:02

Hi,
In Schematics there is a possibility to set which side a specific component shall be placed.
Component properties>Attached pattern>Side>Top or Bottom

I have tried to change a SOIC-20/300mm pattern to bottom instead of top side.
But in PCB layout it remain on the top side and I have to make the change inside PCB instead.

Why ?
Am I missing something here ?

There is no way to predefine what side a specific component will be placed. The setting in Schematic editor allows only to preview patterns from different sides.
