Foundation Schematic: Macro - Not updating when 'create netlist from current sheet'


Keywords: Foundation, Schematic, Marco, update, save, create,
netlist, current, sheet

Urgency: Standard

General Description: A lower level schematic macro is created,
saved, and added into the project library. If changes are then
made to this macro, and the 'Options -> Create Netlist from
Current Sheet' option is used to update the project, the changes
to the macro are not saved.


Two possible work arounds: Instead of using the 'Options ->
Create Netlist from Current Sheet', after making changes to
the macro:

1) Do an 'Options -> Hierarchy Pop'. This will prompt to save
the macro and replace the symbol if the pins changed.
2) Do an 'Options -> Create Netlist'. This will automatically
save the changes and prompt to replace the symbol if the
pins changed.
