Replace, update and remove schematic sheet document template

In this article we will show you how to:

1. Choose a new schematic sheet document template and replace the old one with it.
2. Update a schematic sheet document template
3. Remove a schematic sheet document template

If you haven’t created a new schematic template yet, you can learn from our tutorial how to create a new schematic template by modifying an exiting one.

1. Choose a new schematic sheet document template and replace the old one with it.

In order to achieve this follow the next 6 steps:

1. Open en exiting or create a new Schematic file (.SchDoc) for which you want to change the template. For the details how to Create a new PCB Project and add Schematic and PCB document see our tutorial.

2. Go to Design -> Templates -> General Templates -> Choose Another File and select your new template file and press Open. See image below for the details.

Update Template window will appear where you can:

3.Choose Document Scope. Available options are:

Just this document
All schematic documents in the current project
All open schematic document

As we have only one opened schematic, we can set Just this document or All open schematic document action which is in this case the same. In our example, we’ll set it to Just this document.

4.Choose Parameter Action

Do not update any parameters
Add new parameters that exist in the template only
Replace all matching parameters

(we will set it to Replace all matching parameters). See image below for the details.

5. After it, you should press OK. If you’ve set it all properly, Information Window will appear. See window image below.

6. Press OK. New template will replace the old one and will also replace or add all matching parameters on a new schematic document.

2. Update a schematic sheet document template

If you’ve already set a schematic sheet document template on your schematic document and made some changes on a template file you just need to update a schematic sheet document template to see template changes on your schematic document. You can achieve it by clicking on Design -> Templates -> Update Current Template and Choose Document Scope window will appear. See image below for the details.

Follow steps from 3 to 6 from chapter Choose a new schematic sheet document template and replace the old one with it.

3. Remove a schematic sheet document template

To remove a a schematic sheet document template go to Design -> Templates -> Remove Current Template… See image below for the details.
