How can I generate a block symbol from a schematic ?

If you want to create a hierarchical design composed of top level and lower level schematics, you should create block symbols for the schematics at lower levels and place the created block symbols on the schematics top level. For this purpose, you need to create a block symbol from currently loaded schematic in the Schematic Editor using the following steps.

  1. Open the schematic design in the Schematic Editor.

  2. Choose Design > Generate Symbol.

  3. A new symbol for the schematic is created in the directory of the schematic.

  4. You can add the created symbol on the schematic at upper level by Edit > Add > Symbol in Schematic Editor.
