FindThe Find tool is used to locate devices, signals or pins in a schematic by name or attribute values. Once the objects are found they may be sequentially selected and viewed or selected as a group to be operated on with some other tool. For example, you might locate all capacitors with a certain Value setting, then use the Browser to display those selected items and enter a modified value. The Find tool is script based, that is, it calls the report generator tool to run a script file and then uses the output of the script to locate the objects that the script describes. For this reason, it has considerably more flexibility than just as a ”find by name” tool. Any processing that can be done in a script can be used to locate objects. This chapter describes how to use Find with the predefined scripts provided and also gives details on customizing your own error location scripts.
