Issue Details

A symbol in my schematic is too small and I want to make it bigger, how do I change the size of symbols in Multisim?

Solution

  1. Open the Symbol Editor for the symbol you want to alter.
  2. Select the menu option Edit>>Resize boundary box, or click on the respective button in the tools toolbar.    ​                                                                                       
  3. Resize the boundary box of the symbol, this will allow you to edit the symbol within the limits of the defined area.
 

Additional Information

  • Bitmaps or shapes you draw must be inside the defined symbol boundary box, and symbol pins have to be outside of the boundary.
  • The grid outside of the symbol boundary box matches the schematic grid so it can be used as a guide to determine how big your symbol should be.
  • The symbol editor can be used to create components, hierarchical/subcircuits, and title blocks if you are not sure how to access it, refer to the documents linked below.
