Waiting for the implementation of annotation in Schematic Editor, I propose you a workaround for this useful functionality :
adding to Base Lib a message components that is schematic only. We could write the message in the value field like this :
I have experienced this but encounter some problems.
I have created 2 symbols :
- 1 with a filled box in “Hidden Grab Areas” layer which is invisible in schematic (the first one)
- 1 with an unfilled box in “Hidden Grab Areas” layer which is visible (only light yellow background) in schematic (the second one)
First problem is that filled and unfilled are inverted.
And regarding to the place we look at the symbol, it is different.
Second problem, I do not succeed in making only one component with many symbol variants (as I have to create a symbol per message size box).
Maybe a little bug with multiple symbol in only schematic component, but I am not sure.
