#1 Catalogue doesn't show new item copied from Bock generated symbol

I saved a copy of a bock generated symbol and create a new item in the catalogue. The item doesn't show in the catalogue when i open it. 

 

 

 

Would this recommended method have worked for you?

Thanks for posting on the forum.

The recommended method to achieve what you wanted would be the following:

  1. Select the symbol in the library you want to use as a template
  2. Go to the Block Generator tab and choose Open Component
  3. Expand the properties of the part and change the part number (and any other details if you wish)
  4. Optional: add/remove/change any terminals if you wish
  5. Generate Graphical Block to create a new block for that part (the catalogue part will automatically be saved to your catalogue in the process)

Please let us know if that would have worked for you.
