Vectored Instances

Device and subcell instances can be scalar or vectorized. By giving an instance a range property with the Property Editor from the Edit Menu, the instance will become vectored. The single schematic representation in the drawing of a vectored instance actually corresponds to multiple ``bit'' instances. This can greatly clarify schematics with repeated circuit blocks.

The connections to a vectored instance are all multi-conductor nets (assuming that the array range contains more than one element).
