Scenario: I have a relay coil in my schematic and I insert it in my panel layout. The relay needs a base. For it to show up properly - at least the way I want to see it on the BOM, I have to insert the base footprint - I don't like how the "Multiple Catalog" option works with the BOM Report. Is there a way that if a component is inserted, ACADE will automatically insert a dependant component, or at least prompt me to insert the dependant component without me having to go find it? Thank you in advance!
Thank you very much for your suggestion.
Currently, the AutoCAD Electrical will not automatically insert a dependant component when a component is inserted, if you need to insert the Footprint for a component in the schematic drawing, then you need to find it in the component list.
But your suggestion is really good. I have added it into the list and Team will consider it in the future release.
