  • Couple of PCB Editor Questions
     I've searched numerous places and can't seem to find the answer to these two questions regarding symbol modification in Editor. 1)  Load a .dra file into Editor,  its a previously built symbol that I simply want to change the position of an outline on the Assembly_Top layer.  I seem to be only able to pick up the ...

  • Re: Duplicate the RefDes
    Mike,  tried this and worked great.  Our boards generally have plenty of room, so I will usally over do the silkscreen layer with markings for whomever stuffs the board, duplicate RefDes on the silk screen is what I was looking for.  We share symbol libs, but not everyone shares my opinion of "more is ...

  • Duplicate the RefDes
    Board layout is finshed, just adding final touches to silkscreen, would like to to make a second copy of the refdes.  Example: 1st RefDes for an IC (DIP package) is dead center in the middle of the componant package (under the body of the IC) but a second RefDes is placed such that you can see it after the componant ...

  • How to Use "save as" ??
    Using OrCAD Capture 16.3, what I want to do is make a copy of a project, save it in a different folder with a new name. Using "file save" what I end with is a a new project and design file ( good so far ) but my original project now references the schematic in the new project. How can I create a completely independent copy of an ...

  • Re: Error: aborting film
    Harold,  thanks for the reply, but after a few days of playing with it,  that doesnt seem to be the problem.   I think I know whats going on,  but would appriciate your input.   When we bring up the "Artwork control" form under manufacture/artwork,  and ADD a new film,  the ...

  • Error: aborting film
    I can't seem to figure out what the error is.  If I change the dynamic copper filled shape (on top layer) from solid to hatch, the "errors" go away. Ignore the 'warnings'  I'll take care of those later,  I'm only worried about errors (see ...

  • Re: RE: Changing Padstack of Pin in a Symbol
    First of all, my apoligies for posting in the SKILL forum,  jumping back and forth between pages I must have mis-clicked somewhere.  Secondly, thanks for the answer,  though I'm not sure how I over looked it in the frist place. A logical place to look for replacing a pad stack would be in tools-padstack-replace ...

  • Changing Padstack of Pin in a Symbol
    I've searched the forum archives and found some posts that "sort of" answered my question, but none that had the answer I wanted to hear.    I'm making the switch from an old version of Layout to Orcad PCB Editor 16.2 (Allegro), which means I am currently learning to create new footprint ...
