  • Not in BOM

    Hi Guys,

    How we can prevent a components from appearing in BOM, for example a test point which is not a components in deed , but it appear in BOM, I need to set it not shown in BOM.

    In the schematic symbol properties, select Type: Standard (No BOM). If you have a library of components it's good to select it in the library, so that the particular components never show in BOM when used.

      Hi JohnsonMiller, yes mairomaster is right. Also, some time ago I made a video about it. This may help you: Altium Designer – Components included in BOM or PCB Only

ID:	3900 Thank you,
        in the type drop down list some other item exist, in the attached view, what those item means, especially Net tie and jumper? Does jumper mean we can have same net on both end of components?

          JohnsonMiller sometimes you may want to design a "short circuit" component. That is when you may want to use "net tie". Have a look at this discussion:

            Than you Robert,

            In schematic library creation can we specify Designator and Comment location? You see Designator (U?) and component is not in proper location. With each lib update it changes, too.

              In the library editor choose Tools -> Document options -> Always show comment/designator. Then you can adjust their position and font. I don't think it is kept the same 100% of the times though, Altium is a bit strange with respect to that. You can also try to disable the designator auto position from the designator properties. The disadvantage of this is that you will have an annoying dot next to the designator.
