In placing nameplates for devices on a panel enclosure layout, is there a way to set up the part to automatically generate a separate symbol on the page with the detail of what is on the nameplate? I'm thinking of some kind of attribute for the main part. Can I create custom attributes to use on a part?
Not sure if I can answer the whole question, but yeah, you can get generic Attributes, when you're in a library symbol or title block, just go to Draw>Attribute and you can define it with whatever you like. Leave the value blank, and then when you insert the symbol in a project, right click, go to Edit Attributes, and fill in the Value with whatever you want displaying.
