General Description: How can I quickly locate a net or bus in my schematic?
The following procedure only looks for signals on the currently open sheets (i.e, it won't open a sheet if the net/bus is on that sheet).
1. Select Mode -> Query or click on the Query icon (far right button in the top toolbar). The Query Window appears.
2. Make sure that the following options are selected: Signal/Bus opened sheets (select "current sheet only" if you only want to search on the currently selected sheet)
3. In the top section of the window, type in the signal or bus name you are searching for. Buses can be searched using any of the following formats: <bus_name> <bus_name> <bus_name>[3:0]
4. Press <Enter> or <Return>.
If the signal or bus is found, it will be highlighted (this includes all net/bus stubs with the same label).
If the signal or bus is not found, the following message will appear in the Project Manager window:
SC: Find option: bus/signal not found
If more than one sheet contains a net/bus that matches the search, the Query Window will only report on one sheet. To search for the same net/bus name on other sheets, close the first sheet and repeat the Query.
