Setting Component Library preferences

  1. Open the General area of the AMBA Designer Preferences dialog box.

  2. Specify where the tool searches for the Component Library files. AMBA Designer uses the components in these files to fill the list in the Component Window. You can choose from the following options:

    • Use current directory. This is the directory in which AMBA Designer starts. This is the default setting.

    • Use the specified directory.

    • Use the location of the current AMBA Designer project, *.adg, file for the working directory.

  3. If you changed the preferences, refresh the Component Window:

    1. Select File → Close from the menu.

    2. Right-click on the background of the Component Window and select Refresh Component List.

    3. To reopen the updated component, drag it from the Component Window onto the Canvas.


    The system diagrams that are currently open are not updated automatically. You must close and reload affected systems to see changes in the Component Library components.
