    Footprint viewer in Capture schematic Reply

     Hi

    I just got a new computer and a new install for 16.6 software program.

    Having trouble setting up the above to view footprints in schematic capture.

    In PCB EDITOR user preferences I have set the paths to my symbol libraries.

    In my capture.ini file I have the following entry;

    [Allegro Pootprints]

    Dir0=P:\a_PCB_Design\CADENCE PCB DESIGN\SYMBOLS\CAPS

    If I select a cap in the schematic file and RMB, show footprint, I get the following error message;

    Could not find padstack.... Cannot open the design database file, unable to open CAP0603.psm

    I have read many posts on this topic but still unable to figure it out.

    Thanks,

    Carvey

    In this post there is a typo.

     

    [Allegro Pootprints] should be [Allegro Footprints] is it that way in your ini file?
