I've got two Jobs which have only mildly different layouts, all components and RefDes are the same. I then try to panelize five of one design and four of the other. The panel file then has nine of each component, each with the exact same RefDes and I am unable to make any changes to those designations. My typical PCB service cannot accept this BOM/Centroid file, each component must have a unique RefDes. How can I update the RefDes (ideally automated) so that each component has a unique RefDes in the panel? Thank you.
