Tutorial: Hiding port text
Hide or show port text in a diagram.
In HydroSym you can hide all text at once or hide specific text elements.
Method 1: hide single text element
Hide the Port Text of a single port by adjusting the properties.
To open port properties double-click the element, in this example double-click
Show text to turn of the port text in your schematic.
To hide the
Size attribute, double-click the text
BSP 1/4” and clear
Text blocks can also be hidden through the layer menu.
It’s impossible to hide a single text element by toggling a visibility setting, instead you need to delete the text block.
To delete the text block of a symbol used in a schematic, select the symbol and press E or right-click the symbol and select
Edit Symbol [E].
This opens a canvas with just the symbol.
Any change made affect the symbol in the schematic and not the symbol in your library.
Remove the text by selecting it and pressing Delete.
Update and Return in the right upper corner to return to the schematic.
Method 2: hide the text layer
You can also hide port texts and attributes for your whole diagram by disabling layers.
Open the layer properties using the toolbar or through the menu .
In the Layers dialog turn off the “Attribute (Default)” and “Port (Default)” layers. This hides all Port texts and Attributes in your schematic.
