  • Re: RE: Skill code to move component
    Thanks, Dave - that does work. I had it as a custom menu item which gave me the error when I tried to activate the code from the menu. What I am looking for is the ability to move any component by coordinates, rotation, and mirror/not mirrored, kind of like a properties info window. I have many components to move from a list of location ...

    Dave, When I try to use the moveByRefDes.il program I get the following error in Allegro: E- *Error* moveByRefdes: too few arguments (1 expected, 0 given) - nil  What does that mean? Do you have a latest .il program? I am trying to move by coordinates, rotation, mirror within one screen. Thanks,  Bob Hays bob.hays@coachcomm.com

  • Re: replacing symbols in Allegro 16.3
    Chris,Thanks for your reply. I do not know how to create a mapping file or write a SKILL program. I was hoping that somebody has written a SKILL program that would do this. My part name in Orcad Layout is different than the part name in the Allegro library. This is the problem along with the different rotation and origin. What I tried is to export ...

  • replacing symbols in Allegro 16.3
    I have just translated an Orcad Layout board into Allegro v16.3 and have caps and resistors with the origin on pin 1 when my equivalent component in my Allegro library has the origin in the center and has a different name, but the same number of pins. Is there an easy way to accomplish this? I have looked for a skill program to replace components ...
