How can component location marks be automatically added in SW Electrical

Question asked by Andries Koorzen on Mar 11, 2015

Good day all.


Please refer the attached picture.


I have a client that would like to insert the current location of a component every time the component symbol is placed on a schematic. Apparently this is common practise

Does anyone know how to have this added automatically through editing attributes / formulas?

I saw under Electrical that it is possible to add more attributes, but there seems no way to choose the location


Also...editing the symbol and trying to add attributes does not give anything meaningful. Using LOC_TZ_0_L1 / L2 attributes (Symbol manager -> Symbol -> Location -> Description) produces empty values in a schematic.

Does anyone have an idea how to accomplish this?
