I created a subcircuit for my schematic and I do not like the default symbol, how do I modify the symbol?


The following steps show how to modify a subcircuit or a hierarchical block symbol:
  1. Select the subcircuit you want to modify by left-click on it
  2. Select Edit»Edit Symbol/Title Block to launch the symbol editor 
  3. In the symbol editor, make the changes you want such as re-arrange the pins, draw a new graphic or import a bitmap.
  4. Once you are a happy with the symbol you created, select File»Exit.
Note: Do not select File»Save As and save the file in a different location, Multisim will not find it.
