When viewing a PCB (
.pcbdoc) layout in Altium, is there a way to search for a specific component by name? Like "highlight C35 and show it on the screen"?
Key in 'j', 'c', and enter the designator. "(J)ump"->"(C)omponent".
This works in the schematic editor as well.
Alternatively, open the PCB panel, and select 'Components' in the top drop-down selection. Sort the available columns by designator, and click on the component of choice.
The zoom level and highlight mode, for the targeted component, are both configurable in preferences.
