Hello all. Not sure if anyone else has had this happen, but when I am in the temrinal editor and I insert my end barriers, end anchors, jumpers, etc, I will exit out to do something else. But when I come back into it (either next day, or later the same day) all the changes will be gone. And yes, afetr exiting the editor, the program will go through and do a bunch of updating to other pages as needed.
It is getting really annoying having to repeat all that work, epsecialyl when I have several TB strips that need this editing.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
They either go missing for me or all end up at the bottom of the list and I have to re-arrange everything.
That's why I don't do the terminal stip layouts until the schematics have been approved and are ready to issue.
Do you have the graphical terminakl strip inserted on any page?
All this extra information for a terminal strip is saved in the graphical terminal strip, and not in the schematic terminals.
Pretty sure rhesusminus is right. Try placing the strip off to the side somewhere until your ready to use it in the panel. At that point you can insert again and place it as needed.
I'm running into a similar problem in 2013. I create a new terminal strip; Location JBOX2, Strip JB-3 (for example), I add several terminals, and an end barrier on each end. Assign catalog information etc. and insert the strip into a panel layout. Everything looks just fine. The terminals associated with this strip in the schematic update and show the correct locationa and t-strip info.
Later (or even right away) I go back into the terminal strip editor to set up another one. The previously saved strip now shows terminals only, and the end barriers have been moved to a t-strip of their own with only those 2 items in it. So I Edit that new strip and delete all the accessories (effectively emptying that strip), and add them back into the strip where they should be. Update, rebuild, save, done. Open terminal strip editor again and,.... you guessed it, they've moved off into thier own strip again.
I realize I don't use this program often enough to know what the heck I'm doing, but this seems a bit odd.
When I place the strip from the editor, the end barriers DO insert with it, but once I have closed the editor they become separated into a new TS. Doing a rebuild on the original, or adding more spares etc... the end barriers do NOT get updated with the strip... the get covered up by any new spares or accessories I've added. I have to manually move them to the end of the strip... but first I have to find them underneath.
I had the same problem. It turned out that for the accessores the blocks that are inserted on the panel layout did not have the attribute P_TAGSTRIP.
so I updated the blocks and now it works fine.
