Example : Creating a Symbol

Step 5 : Check and Save

1. To check and save the symbol, choose Check and Save from the Design menu :
( Design --> Check and Save )

Main menu

While editing the symbol, you can use only Save, which does not check anything. At this point, checking a symbol means comparing the symbol view with the corresponding schematic view, by matching all of the pin names. This occurs only when you click on Check and Save.
