Just a quick blog this week to mention a couple productivity enahancements for Capture-CIS. The 16.6 Allegro Design Entry CIS (Capture) product has a few new enhancements for Saving designs.

Read on for more details ...


In the Hierarchy viewer, you’ll now see pages and library components which have been modified by the designer marked with an asterisk (“*”). These are schematics and pages that require saving prior to existing Capture:


Save As

This enables a user-controlled save of associated files along with the project at a new specified location while maintaining the original references.

Available options:

  • Copy DSN to Project Folder
  • Rename DSN to match Project
  • Copy all referred files present within the project folder
  • Copy all referred files present outside of the project folder

Saved associated files include referred projects, designs, libraries, simulation profiles, output files, etc.

Select Project (Design Resources) and RMB click on Save As:


Change the destination directory and project name:


Please share your experiences using these new features.
