    batch replace cell libraries Reply

    I am trying to replace all the cells that come from a certain library with the same cell in a different library. for example, i want to replace all  "NFET", "PFET", etc cells in my current schematic (all the way down to the bottom of the hierarchy) because they're currently sourced from library "OLD_WORK". I want to replace all these instances with the "NFET", "PFET" etc corresponding cell from library "NEW_WORK". the new cells will have the same name, i basically juts want to find and replace all mentions of "OLD_WORK" with "NEW_WORK". 

     

    does anyone have any suggestions? i've been able to do this with the "replace all" option in "Search" in the layout editor, but haven't found a corresponding way in the schematic editor. thanks.

    1. Open top schematic for edit
    2. Schematic Editor -> Edit -> Replace
    3. Search for: libName == "OLD_WORK"
    4. Replace with: libName == "NEW_WORK"
    5. Search scope: hierarchy
    6. from: top
    7. Apply
    8. ReplaceAll
