Can you please check if custom component creation can address all your issues. Grouping on and off chip components, creating a integrated circuit etc. Please note that you can create off chip components as well.
To create component please refer component author guide [Help-> Documentation-> Component Author Guide] or there are some videos available as well: http://www.cypress.com/resource-types/video/psoc-creator-custom-components
Please find the image where I am able to create an IC like external component and wires are rendering properly.
I was vaguely aware of component creation, primarily as a way of creating new digital components. This does look like I could rectify some of the issues, but it is quite a heavy-weight process and I am always wary of spending all my time honing tools rather than using them! I'll probably give it a go to create a simple off-chip connection point.
However it would be a lot simpler if we could compose modules in the schematic editor simply by grouping symbols and then adding the group to the component catalog. It is hard to see why the existing grouping mechanism does not allow groups to include components from the component catalog.
I don't mind creating the components out of boxes, lines and text but it would be great if one could draw an external type line anywhere on the page.
They only seem to appear if connected to an off-chip component.
Sometimes I want to be able to draw a line from a grouped object that I created to a Cypress component.
Whenever I do so it draws a digital or analog wire.
The only legal way connecting internal and external components is through a Pin, which represents a chip physical terminal. You can use annotation library for making supplemental schematics:
Such option already exists in Creator: arrange components on a page and save them as a "template". The schematics will appear in the Components catalog.
