Include Sheet in Schematic

#1 Post by PaulNewf » 31 May 2019, 12:17

Many of my boards reuse circuits.
Is there a way to include my standard circuits as a sheets in another schematic?
Basically these circuits are like a complex component.
I'd prefer not to copy paste to ensure always getting latest version.

If you are wondering if there is a way to automatically link a schematic page to another schematic file, I don't believe that is possible in DipTrace. As far as I know, you will have to cut and paste from another open Schematic Editor instance and live with the automatic renumbering of the pasted schematic's reference designators.

Life.

For the renumbering I copy each block to another file, and then I can control renumbering startfor block, and copy back. Circuit blocks numbered in blocks makes layout easier
