I have used PADs PCB, Orcad, and Orcad Unision Suit 10.0i. I am finding great difficulty working with Orcad PCB Editor / OrCAD PCB Designer. It is not so easy to create footprints and I can not find good "how to" information from the built in help files or on the Cadence website. I have even tried the CIS / Active parts data base and found very little footprints out there. The effort to create a simple seven segment display footprint for a common Lumex LDS-A412RI has become complex.
Is there any help for me. I think my simple approach would be to copy a 14 pin DIP footprint, edit the shape of footprint, remove some pins, adjust the pad stack to a Pad30cir20d for all pins, assign the new foot print as 7-Seg-Lumex_LDS, assign the footprint in my capture schematic and enjoy life.
Thanks in advance for who could help me with a "how to guide" Or a foot print for a Lumex LDS-A412RI "seven segment, single display, common anode"
