    Save all pads from open symbol into new folder Reply

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to make my design more portable by keeping my padstacks for a new project away from the global library - is there a way I could open a symbol and save all the padstacks to some location?

    I'm using PCB Editor (Allegro)  16.6, and there are A LOT of files generated when I'm doing things with these designs, and I'd like to know what I have to take and what is generated by the program. 

     Maybe I should write a skill file or tcl file to do this, if it doesn't exist?

    Thanks!

    Try File -> Export -> Libraries, select padstacks and set the directory location.
