For some reason, I cannot replace my padstack in an existing package design. I am using OrCAD PCB Editor 16.6 S012.
Here is what I do:
1. Open the symbol package design (.dra). Pins are checked in the find window.
2. I click Tools -> Padstack -> Replace, click on the pin I want to replace and the existing padstack name appears in the Old Padstack field of the options window.
3. I then find the new name in the new pulldown menu.
4. I then option-click in the design window and click Done.
When I hover over the padstack I wanted to replace, the padstack is still the old name. There was no error message indicated.
The new padstack does exist, is valid, and it is located in the path. I can add new pins using the new padstack but I cannot replace existing pins.
Has anyone run into this before?
Thanks in advance,
