NOTE: Filters only apply to Schematic and Flow diagrams.
You can customize the diagram using the
Filters button in the diagram editor toolbar.
Use the drop-down menu at the top of the dialog to select from available filters.
Use the buttons in the top-right corner of the dialog to create, duplicate, or delete the current filter.
Use the checkboxes at the bottom of the dialog to further clean up the diagram.
A filter is defined using filter rules (one per line). The general form of a filter rule is:
command is one of
element_kinds is a comma-separated list of kinds. The available kinds are
output ports, and
regex is a regular expression that matches the relevant diagram element labels
color_name_or_code is a color specified by
6- or 3-digit hexadecimal code, or
comma-separated decimal RGB code or the keyword
random. This is relevant only for
TIP: You can use content assist to write the filters (
CTRL + Space).
To apply a filter rule only to elements under a specific instance, you must provide the relevant path in the
regex section of the rule:
path must always begin with the name of the top instance (or module) in the diagram (if
instance is under
top_instance/instance/... is valid, while
instance/... is not)
path consists only of names of instances (with the possible exception of the top module) and "
/" (i.e. you can't use the module name in a path except if the diagram top is a module, and not an instance)
each level is separated from the previous using "
/'''" (valid: '''top_instance/inst1/inst2/...; not valid:
regular expressions may be used in the
path section of a rule (for example,
regex contains "
", everything before the last "/" is the ''path, the rest is used to match the relevant diagram elements (in the following example, the bolded text is the path: '''top_instance/.*/inst1/
regex does not contain "
/", it applies to all elements of the appropriate
TIP: You can hide the hierarchy under an instance with the filter "hide blocks matching
With the predefined filter in the image above, the resulting diagram will be similar to the following:
