I just wanted to run
cvpcb, and it started the Annotation tool.
The thing is, I in my schematic, I named some of the components with uniquely named fields, like
MYCONN (the rest of them are all numbered/annotated, like
R2, etc…) - however, once the Annotation tool was over, it had renamed my
I would much prefer to keep
MYCONN as is, even after the annotation process, as I’ve already made sure that it is unique, and as such will not refer to other elements. Also, if I remember correctly, if you place a new schematic part, its reference label is
R? etc - I would have thought the question mark at end is the “marker” for “unannotated” part, as used in http://docs.kicad-pcb.org/stable/en/eeschema.html :
You can unconditionally annotate all the components, or only the new components, i.e. those which were not previously annotated
Right now, it looks to me as all schematic reference labels that don’t end with a number, are considered “not previously annotated”.
So is there some way, for me to mark a schematic symbol reference label as “annotated” (provided I’ve made sure it is unique), so the automatic annotation tool skips that label when doing the renaming and numbering?
