Power Check Tools

Have there been any improvements to this yet?

 

I have been able to embed the Source and Load XDATA values into my existing symbols but am having trouble with the Pass Component XDATA. That appears to be tied to the block after insertion.

 

Has anyone come up with a way to embed this in the symbol drawing??

 

Also, the Pass Component appears to only work if the symbol has only two terminals. Is this correct? I have developed a symbol with 6 terminals and the Pass Component does not work.

 

Thanks,

Upon further research, it appears that the Power Check does not folllow Source/Destination arrows from page to page.

 

In the WDDEMO project, I set up sources on Page 2 and then set up loads on Page 3 and these loads where not counted during the Load Check Report but the loads on Page 2 were.

 

I am using 2013 so maybe it used to work.

 

I am a bit dissapointed. This feature would have been really useful in circuit design. A pity. Looking back, this feature has been in the product since 2005 and it still does not work effectively.

 

Someone really dropped the ball on this one...
