    Capture 16.3 Errors Reply

    I'd like to report the following error in the 16.3 Version of Capture or Design Entry CIS:

    When converting a project from 16.01 to 16.3 Net Properties get mangled.  I had a design all constrained with Propagation Delays and Relative Propagation Delays placed on a set of high-speed signal groups.  When converting the design from 16.01 to 16.3 the Relative Propagation Delay value got copied to the Propagation Delay value.  Now every time I net it to the board I get 174 warnings about the Propgation Delay being defined improperly.  To make matters worse I cannot delete the Propagation Delay In the Schematics.  Anybody have a clue how I delete these properties without re-drawing 34 pages of schematics?  Don't tell me to select the property and hit delete.  I do that and see the properties disappear.   When I hit apply they re-appear.  If I just close the property editor and open it again they have re-appeared.  Deleting the Occurrance Property does nothing, Deleting the flat netlist property does nothing.

     This is a user forum.  Bugs like this should be reported to Cadence for immediate support.

    I was hoping some other "users" had run into this problem and found a work around.  Generally, the response time on forums is lightyears ahead of tech support.  Especially when it comes to OrCad.

     Hi JVWVS1,

     

    Try exporting out a netlist/w properties from the original *.brd database.  Then read in the netlist.txt into the 16.3 *.brd.

     Once the properties have been properly assigned, then create backannotation files to read back in to capture.
