ACE2012 Link components & reverse component

Hi

 

What is the right way to unlink component

 

I have reversed the component and then I wasn't able to connect wire,

 the connection was made over component, what I make wrong

 

Thank for help, Vito

Kind regards, Vito

When you reversed the contacts, did you check the box to only reverse the graphics?

 

I've had similar problems in the past when reversing a component and found that if I didn't check that box, the attributes would also be moved but the wire direction wouldn't change.

 

Regards Brad

How did you reverse the component? If you simply mirrored it, then ACE will not work properly. You have to use the "Reverse/Flip Component"Command. One way of finding it is to hover over the component and then Right Mouse Click. This command is located near the bottom.

 

You can use "Trim WIre" to disconnect a component from the wiring.

Also what library are you using? IEC2, IEC4, JIC1, JIC125, etc? They all use the same file names but the drawings are different.

I am not sure what is wrong.

 

I had no trouble reversing any of these contacts.

 

Sorry that I could be of more help.
