nested hierarchical blocks in Capture

I'm a frustrated Orcad Capture user.,  The "Schematics" capture tool (originally designed by MicroSim and briefly carried along by Cadence) is no longer available so I must use Capture now.  Has anyone figured out how to nest hierarchical blocks to various levels?  By nest I mean place a symbol referencing a schematic within another symbol referencing a separate schematic within another symbol referencing yet another schematic etc etc...  Some symbols reference a schematic with only other interconnected symbols.  The actual detailed schematic may be at the 3rd or 4th level down.

In "Schematics" this was very simple to do.  I had full circuits at 4 and 5 levels deep with nested symbols/schematics.  Unfortunately, I no longer have access to that Schematics based platform.  Capture is a cumbersome often frustrating tool that tries to do too much.  Anyway, has anyone done the above?  Cadence Orcad user guide only describes hierarchical port to one level of depth.

Nevermind, I figured it out, no help from Cadence by the way...their support sucks.
