The No Top Symbolic Button: Enforce Schematic View

This button will appear in the Main Window sub-menu of the Attributes Menu or the sub-window Attributes menu only when the window is displaying in electrical mode. Thus, it never appears in XicII or Xiv feature sets.

When set, the top-level cell will be displayed as a schematic, whether or not the top-cell has an active symbolic representation.

Unlike the symbl button in the electrical side menu, this does not change the internal state of the cell (thus triggering the ``modified'' flag), and applies only to the window where set. It is available in electrical sub-windows in physical mode, when the electrical side menu is hidden.

All editing capability is available, so it is possible to edit the schematic and symbolic views of the same cell simultaneously, in different windows.
