Hi Laki.anu87,


What you are seeing at the end of the component is not a component cross-reference.

Your Component TAG is using %F and %N.


% F is the Family code

% N is the Format Reference. depending on what reference option you choose you will see different results.


The Default option is  Reference Numbers (rung numbers)  

Then you have X zone  and X-Y Zone .... your drawing appears to be using X-Y Zone. 

And its set up for Vertical rungs not Horizonital...


If you don't want to use X-Y Zone... then change it, or use Sequential, insead of line reference.


Here are some example of what the options would look like.



The first  4 use  Line Ref (The suffix) so repeats on the same line get  " ", A, B, C, etc, or " ",1, 2, 3, 4, etc.


Rung Ref Numbers          (PB123, LT124, CR123, etc)

X Zone (Alpha)                 (PBA, PBD, PBX, LTA,LTE, LTY, etc)

X Zone (Num)                   (PB1, PB15, PB26, LT1, LT12, LT23, etc)

X-Y Zone (alpha-Num)     (PBA-1, PBD-7, PBF-2, LTA-1, LTE-9, LTZ-99, etc)


Sequential                         (PB1, PB2, PB3, LT1, LT2, LT3, CR1, CR2, CR3, etc)


I hope this helps,




James Alger
