Quadcept : Convenient Functions

Cross Probe

With a Cross Probe feature, when selecting an object on either a schematic or PCB sheet, you can select the counterpart on the other sheet and it will automatically take you to that object location.

Enabling Sync Selection between SCH and PCB Sheets

By enabling sync selection between SCH and PCB sheets, you can synchronously select an identical object existing in schematic and PCB sheets. The setting(Enabled / Invalid) can be toggled on "Draw(Schematic)" in the "Environment Settings" dialog or in the "Property Window". Enabling this setting will permit you to run a "Cross Probe" menu.

Enabling/Disabling Sync Selection between SCH and PCB Sheets(Environment Settings)
The following will explain how to configure sync selection between schematic and PCB sheets in the "Environment Settings".
To open the "Environment Settings" dialog, refer to "About Environment Settings".
(1) Check / Uncheck the checkbox of "Enable Sync Selection between SCH and PCB Sheets" in "Draw(Schematic)".

 

Enabling/Disabling Sync Selection between SCH and PCB Sheets(Property Window)
The following will explain how to configure sync selection between schematic and PCB sheets in the "Property Window".
(1) Open a schematic or PCB sheet and select "Enabled" or "Invalid" at the "Cross Probe" in the "Property Window".
 

Target Objects of Cross Probe

The target objects of the Cross Probe feature are as follows.

SCH : Component / Pin / Wire
PCB : Component / Pad / Route

Executing Cross Probe

Cross Probe can be executed when sync selection between schematic and PCB sheets is enabled, and you can find the related object on a schematic / PCB sheet when an object is selected on a schematic / PCB sheet.

Executing Cross Probe
The following will explain how to execute Cross Probe to find the counterpart.
*The operations are the same between a schematic and PCB.
(1) Select an object.
(2) Select [Project] => [Cross Probe].
(3) If the related objects are in multiple sheets, select a target sheet and click "OK".
The counterpart on the other sheet will be selected and displayed.

*If the sheet in which the related object exists is not open, it will be automatically opened.
※Cross Probe can also be run from the right-click menu after selecting an object.
