Keywords: Foundation, Fndtn, $FILE, Schematic Editor, disappears

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

The $FILE parameter must be specified in the Symbol Editor.

To do this from the Schematic Editor:

1. Select Tools -> Symbol Editor
2. Use File -> Open to open the symbol
3. Select Symbol -> Parameters
4. Click the "Add" button and enter the $FILE and the desired file name
5. Save the symbol and exit the Symbol Editor

The $FILE parameter will now stay with the symbol on a permanent basis.
