  • Changing some fonts in Allegro Layout 16.5

    I have some general text on my design but I need a different style of text from the 'Courier' default. I only need one or two text to be changed and can use a different textblk number for this if needed. Is it possible to change just one or two text blocks to a different font?

  • How to connect vias to specific layers

    I have a design which has 7 layers. The top layer has only short stubs. There are two layers for traces but they are sensitive signals and there is a solid ground plane above and below these two layers. I have connected these two planes at one point near the incoming supply. I also have a single ground...

  • Merge libraries from project archives into corporate library

    I have to merge symbol/part libraries from archived projects into the main corporate symbol/part libraries. Some of the new parts are simply rows added to the part table file (ex. new resistor value) and others are completely new: new schematic symbol, new package, new footprint, etc. A lack of library...

  • Forcing via connections

    I have a multi-layer design with multiple ground plane layers. But these have issues with ground loops. How can I set something in PCB Editor 16.5 that will only connect vias to one ground plane layer and leave all other layers unconnected, so that I can use a single ground connection point.
