Placing a diagonal diode

Posted by admin 07/11/2015 0 Comment(s) FAQs,

I am building a bridge rectifier in my schematic. I go to the Passive Components and choose the diode. However, when I rotate this component, it only has horizontal and vertical orientations. Is there a way I can give it a diagonal orientation?

 

The component referred to in the Component menu as 'Diode' only has horizontal and vertical orientations. There is a second component that has been created for the diagonal diode orientation. This is also within the Passive Components section of the Analog Primitives and is named 'D45'. It is the exact same model as the 'Diode' component, but just uses a different shape.
