Schematic-Level Pin Type in DRC Verify: Designer verify now analyzes the schematic-level (and block-level) pin type, rather than only analyzing the symbol pin type. The priority order is: Instance > Block > Symbol. The tool also supports pin type overrides from I/O Optimizer. This enables you to make use of any pin type changes directly from your schematic.
