What's Good About Capture’s CIS INI Settings? Look to SPB16.5 and See!

This week, I'm providing a very short blog. While the content is brief and simple, the positive impact to the Allegro Design Entry CIS usability is high!

The Capture INI (project level) settings are always dynamic, the CIS settings are more or less static and usually do not change after the initial CIS database related setup. You may often need to clear out and reinitialize your Capture INI settings, but may still want to retain the CIS settings. To allow this, the 16.5 release now retains the CIS INI settings in a separate back-up file. This file retains the CIS INI settings that Capture will retrieve when it re-initializes the Capture INI settings.

As always, I look forward to your feedback.

Without a doubt keeping the CIS settings in a backup file is a great asset. It's refreshing discovering that these discrepancies between dynamic capture settings and more static CIS settings have been solved. It makes everyone's work a whole lot easier!
