4.2i Foundation - The simulator does not reflect changes to an updated netlist

Description

Keywords: Foundation, Simulator, schematic, netlist, update

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I change a schematic design, create the netlist, and go straight back to the simulator WITHOUT re-opening the logic, the simulator does not recognize the changes.

Also, if I "load the netlist," the net changes are not recognized.

Solution

To see newly added changes to a netlist in the simulator without closing it out, follow these steps:

1. When you have made your changes in schematic, click on "Export Netlist", and select "Open" in the resulting window.

2. Go to the simulator and click "Load Netlist". Choose the correct netlist, and the changes will be made to the simulator.

This will NOT work for deleted changes.
