You can import project items such as schematics, system diagrams, netlists, EM structures, graphs, Switch Lists, symbols, and others into the current (host) project.
To import another project into the current project, choose File > Import Project, then browse for the target project. As shown in the following figure, after you select the project, the Import Project dialog box displays a project tree to allow you to select the project items you want to import.
Items that display in red are
conflicted (have the same name in the
host project). For conflicted items, you can perform one of the following actions:
Select Add auto numbered suffix to allow the AWR Design Environment software to rename the selected, conflicted items by adding a number as a suffix. You must click the button to rename the items.
Select Add prefix to rename the items by adding a prefix you specify. The prefix can only be A-Z, a-z, 0-9, or the "_" or " " (blank) characters. You can add a prefix to just the selected, conflicted items by clicking the button, or add a prefix to all selected items in the project tree by clicking the button.
Select Add suffix to rename the items by adding a suffix you specify. The suffix can only be A-Z, a-z, 0-9 or the "_" or " " (blank) characters. You can add a suffix to just the selected, conflicted items by clicking the button, or add a suffix to all selected items in the project tree by clicking the button.
Manually rename each item by right-clicking it in the project tree and choosing Rename.
Clickto import all of the items and overwrite the conflicted items.
Click Rename Project Items operations performed since opening the dialog box.to revert all
Child folder items mirror the state of their parent folder items (either selected or cleared).
If there are no child folder items (system diagrams in this example), the parent folder (System Diagram) is hidden.
Items under User Folders track the state of the corresponding items under the Project node (either selected or cleared).
Renaming items during project import updates references within the imported project only; it does not affect the host project or the import project disk image.
You cannot import Design Notes, project scripts, and Wizard instance data.
The following figure shows the project tree before (left) and after (right) the import specified in the previous figure.
When there are differences between the host project and the import project, the following standards are in effect upon project import:
If the host project and the import project have different versions of the same PDK, the host project PDK version is used.
If the host project and the import project use different units, a warning displays for any schematics that use variables with a link, so you can locate them. Models with intelligent syntax such as W@1 typically do not prompt warnings because they get the correct values from elements connected to them.
Differences between the import project and the host project in the following layout options may cause the layout to differ after import:
Database unit size (choose Options > Layout Options > Layout tab)
Auto face inset (choose Options > Layout Options > Layout tab)
Number of points/circle (choose Options > Layout Options > Layout tab)
Fixed origin for subcircuits (choose Options > Layout Options > Layout tab)
Fixed origin for layout cells (choose Options > Layout Options > Layout tab)
Allow pCell's origin to float (choose Options > Layout Options > Layout tab)
Draw as polygons (choose Options > Layout Options > Paths tab)
Default Model (choose Options > Layout Options > iNet tab)
