Hidden Attributes

424 Views, 2 Replies

When i Insert a component some of the available attributes are hidden by default. Could someone tell me if this is symbol specific and if i can alter the default to show certain attributes at the point of insert instead of going through the motions of right click unhide etc.

kind regards

Just edit the block and use the properties tool to set the desired attributes to Invisible = No. You may need to scroll down to see the parameter called "Invisible" as it is near the bottom of the properties window. I've done this with MFG and CAT when I anted them to default as visible. You have to increase the text size as well with MFG and CAT, but just about anything you desire is possible.
