  • Off Grid (Misaligned) components and circuits in Capture.

    I've imported a project made by OrCAD Capture 16.0 into OrCAD Capture 16.5 SPB, and all the components and wires have become misalligned to the grid. Thus it doesn't allow me to connect new components to the same. In my search here I found this link in this forum: http://www.cadence.com/Community...

    I'm new to Orcad so bear with me. I've been using Orcad 16.2 Capture and Layout. The schematic was created in capture and then the board was laid out. In the board, I changed some parts (both name and footprint) as well as some netlists. How do I update the schematic to reflect this? I tried...
