    Have to add all Libraries each time. Reply
    I generally add all the available Library all the time so it is easy search parts amoung them. When I was using OrCAD Capture Version 16.0, when I once add all the libraries, Capture use to remember and show it that way whenever I start the Capture, but now in OrCAD capture version 16.5 SPB it looses that information (libraries that are added in the workspace) everytime I restart the Capture. Is there some setting somewhere that I can enable that'll allow it to remember that. Could anyone help?

    Place>Part, Add Library adds the Library files to the Capture.ini file, as always, if the Capture.ini file is writeable, these settings will be permanent on that machine installation. If the Capture.ini is read-only, the settings will likely not be stored. If you have CIS, you can alos use the [Part Library Directories] section in the Capture.ini to specify the library directories.

    Thanks for the response oldmouldy. Makes sense. But how ti find out if my Capture.ini is Writeable or Read Only. And if it is Read Only how to change it to Writeable. Please let me know.
