Title: Modular Schematic and Layout 'building blocks' in Altium
Post by: TG91 on August 30, 2021, 02:17:50 pm
Firstly thanks to everyone who helped on my last thread, very helpful!

In Altium is it possible to save a certain schematic and its layout and then reuse that in another project?

For example, it's quite common to use the same switching regulator or comms transceiver in multiple projects and the layout of these individual elements would be exactly the same. I know I can copy and paste the circuit from another file but is it possible to drag and drop or insert a pre-saved circuit and its layout into another project?

Yes. It's called snippets.
