    Backannotation error Reply

    I am new to PCB Editor and I am learing how to back annotate into Capture CIS. I am getting the following error :

    #1 ERROR(ORCAP-36055): Illegal character in \df12(5.0)-36dp-0.5v.normal\.

    #2 ERROR(ORCAP-36055): Illegal character in DF12(5.0)-36DP-0.5V.

    #3 ERROR(ORCAP-36055): Illegal character in \sm02b-srss-tbt (lf) (sn).normal\.

    #4 ERROR(ORCAP-36055): Illegal character in SM02B-SRSS-TBT (LF) (SN).

    #5 ERROR(ORCAP-36018): Aborting Netlisting... Please correct the above errors and retry.

     

    So these illegal characters are in the value property. How do I change the value of the component in Allegro PCB Editor?

    You cannot have brackets and dots in symbol names, for maximum success, restrict names to use A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and underscore for any object between Capture (CIS) and PCB Editor.
