5.1i ECS - In an "Object Properties" dialog box, the field width is a fixed size


Keywords: fixed, width, scroll, size, cut, paste, cut & paste

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If I attempt to rename an instance (or net) by selecting "Object Properties", the InstName field (or Name field) has a fixed length. This prevents me from scrolling to the end of large names or entering names that are larger than the field width.


To change port or net names, right-click on the desired object and select "Rename Port" or "Rename selected net...". The name fields in both of these windows correctly scroll with the cursor.

You may also continue to use the Object Properties box to edit large names. To do this, resize the Object Properties box until the name field is the desired width.
