Breaking schematic into pages

Postby Railroadnut » Mon Jun 18, 2012 8:06 am

I have completed a design and want to print out the schematic. Unfortantly, I made the drawing too big to print with the printer I have access to. I tried to add pages and copy parts of the schematic to it, BUT it then proceded to unroute that section. Does anybody know a way to break up the schematic without unrouting the board? I guess I could copy the design to a new file and break up the schematic, then ignore the unrouted layout it creates, but it would nice to keep just one file.

There really isn't a way to cut a section out of the schematic without losing some routing. What you can do is break up the schematic into two sections using ports. Then go back to the layout to make sure all of the routing is still there. You should be able to cut one of the whole schematic sections and paste onto a new page without losing any routing.

You cannot add a symbol to the schematic unless it is paired with a matching footprint. The software is designed to represent parts that are on a printed circuit board only.
