EDA, Altium attribute mapping

Hello experts,

I am not able to mapp some attributes between Altium and TC on object EDA Variant (it is custom, but under EDA class) 

Steps to reproduce:

1) open Altium Project

2) Fill Project attrs and Variant attrs

3) Save As to Tc

4) Result:

- only Project attributes are mapped from Altium to Tc (and back, it is working both)

- Variant attributes are mapped only, if attribute is filled in Tc, it sounds like master=IMAN, but it has been set as BOTH.

 

Who have some experience?

 

Thank you

I have very little experience with this.  I'm working on implementing it myself.

 

Is it possible that your variant attributes in Altium are document level parameters instead of project parameters?  In the %TCEDAECAD_ROOT%/psw/Altium/settings.ini file, there is an option to use project level attributes (parameters), document level or both for mapping.

 

If you set the project.level.attributes=DualProjLead, it will search project attributes first and document attributes second.

Hello,

 

thank you for your answer. At this time, EDA is installed by customer site and ready for tests ... no more action is needed.
