Hi All, i just posted this question on the cadence google forum:
is there a simple way to draw 2 or more overlay'd paths/rectangles at
once in various layers. Its for metal strapping and custom metal
fill. I'd use a pCell but i'd like Vxl (this is 5141) to recognise
the connection has been made. Same with vias, if i place e.g a 2x2
Via1 it would be nice to place a 2x2 Via2,3...etc at the same time.
Occasionally i use arrayed pCells (mosiace) for the above but as i
said XL does not see the connectivity & more importantly does not
flash like crazy when the user creates a short. For this reason larger
cells are proving hard to debug in LVS with multi-layer dense routing.
