reordering sheets of multi-sheet schematic

#1 Post by Fenichel » 17 Mar 2012, 16:38

Is there a way to re-order the sheets of a multi-sheet schematic? I'm sure I can get the result I want by copying the entire contents of an existing sheet and then pasting them into a new sheet in the desired place, but it would be simpler if it were possible to just drag the tabs, as in (one example among many) Excel.

I don't think there's a setting for that, but you can right click on the sheet tab and rename them so they're at least numbered in the order you want.

A drag & drop option there for rearranging would be a nice addition, or move left/right options in the right click menu.

It is not possible to reorder sheets now. The feature is already in our feature list. Thanks.

Any idea when this will get implemented? At least from the outside does not seem like a huge change, and right now the inability to drag sheets into a logical order is pretty vexing.

I don't know when it will be implemented. We have not done reordering sheets yet because there are a lot of other features we do.

Please put this high on your list. This is a major pain because you cannot insert sheets at the end, only before existing sheets, so there is no way to add a sheet after all the others. And the suggestions with copy/paste does not work because it loses all the connections that were done as "connect without wire".

To insert a new sheet at the end, please select "Edit/ Add Sheet". Anyway, thank you for your vote about sheet reordering.

Thanks, that does the trick. You may want to consider adding this to the right click menu of the sheet tab, which at the moment only shows "Insert" but not "Add".
