    OrCAD PCB Editor - Need to select, move, and rotate multiple components with etch. Reply

    I'd appreciate a response to accelerate finding a solution.

    I need to select, move, and rotate multiple components with etch.

    I am using OrCAD PCB Editor 16.5. I've used OrCAD Layout for years and still new to PCB Editor.

    In the move command, RMB select ‘Temp group’ , use find filter to filter the selection, select the items in the design, once completed RMB select ‘complete’, In the Options tab select user pick, select the user pick location now, which is the reference point for the temp group selected and will moved/rotated  w.r.t the point.

    Thanks,

    Nagaraj.

    That worked... thank you !

     If I may now ask; since my next question is related:

     Do I use the Z-Copy to replicate instead of move ?

    Then I assume; rename each RefDes to match the schematic for each replicated block ?
