  • Re: basics of thermal pad / power pad footprint creation
    Hi, I have done many layouts with this type of requirement, mainly for telecom products that require isolation between Earth Gnd and Digital Gnd. I would suggest just using the 200mil x 200mil pads at the corners to drive the netlist and add Static Copper shapes making the connections between the corner pads, which you attempted to do with the ...

  • Re: Dehilight doesn't work for a net
    It's a long shot, but I have seen an issue sometime where objects remain highlighted even after many attempts of dehighlight / highlight and dehighlight are done.  In those cases selecting the individual objects (clines, pins, vias) using Show Element would clear the highlight. It's a long shot but I figured I would suggest it ...

  • Re: Is Bold Text Possible?
    In the Text Setup form you can specify a Photo Width for a given Text Block which in effect will make the text bold depending on the width you choose. You can access the Text Setup form from Setup Menu > Design Parameters... under the Text Tab and click the button next to "Setup text sizes". Once there you will see a list of all the ...

  • Re: Assign Pattern option ( disable or a way to set it )
    Hello, I am glad you were able to figure out a way to get your command to work.  One final thing to check is if you have the environmental variable APPMODE set to NONE. This can be set in the Allegro ENV file or at the OS level.  You can verify this by starting Allegro and typing 'set' on the Allegro command line to see all of ...

  • Re: Assign Pattern option ( disable or a way to set it )
    You can run Allegro in Safe mode (allegro -safe) which will bypass all of the special environmental settings but you will need to cut and paste the funckey alias on the Allegro command line.  You may be able to do it but you will need to remove some of the extra spaces before and after the semicolons so it can be pasted without having it wrap ...

  • Re: Assign Pattern option ( disable or a way to set it )
    Hi, I was wondering why you had "hilite" in the command in the first place.  It works for me without the "hilite".  Once I run the command it jumps to the entered RefDes.  The lower right corner of the GUI shows 1 selected object (pre-selected) and that is what zoom selection is centering on. Maybe you ...

  • Re: Assign Pattern option ( disable or a way to set it )
    The Assign Pattern window is showing up because you have a selected component when the command "hilight" is ran.  If you remove the "; hilight" from the funckey command you should be good to go.  The Highlight command (Hilight) has changed in 16.5 and now support pattern highlighting instead of just a single highlight ...

  • Re: PTH/NPTH Drill to Copper feature spacing issue
    To assist in troubleshooting issues like this. I always use Show Constraints (Display > Constraint) to determine which rule is being used between to objects.  Make sure Vias and Clines are selected in the Find Tab and the subclass that the Cline is on is set under the Options Tab then selecting the Cline and Via should give you a idea of ...
