Selection of specific parts in schematic

joe_ls , 07-12-2018, 04:59 PM
Hi Gents!

How can I select all resistors in a schmatic at once?
I can select them one-by-one with LMB+Ctrl, and then use RMB -> "Edit Properties" to edit the properties of all selected parts. But this is not practical at all in a huge design. Is there a way to select all resistors at once?

The selection filter - Ctrl+I - just provides a filter for "Parts" or other elements. :-(

The Search Field and Find Option gives me a list of all resistors, fine, but I cannot get them selected on the schematic page. :-(

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Found it: :-)

To search for all parts with references containing R and followed by any number between 1 and 9999, use the search string Part Reference=R[1-9999] with both Property Name=Value and Regular Expressions option selected.

It also works with other property names:
"Source Part=CAPACITOR*"

The content of the "Edit Properties"-Tab updates itself after every new search.
