    Hi "sgunupuri",

    in Cadence 6.15 /ViVa you've to place two markers ("m") before you can use the delta marker

    ==> Place marker 1, place marker 2, mark both (usign shift key) and press shift + "d"


    Other possibility: use the 'new' so called "AB marker". It has the functionality of the old delta marker of Cadence 5.

    ==> Press "a" to set the 1st marker, press "b" to set the 2nd marker. Additionally, the delta in x and the delta in y direction as well as the slope will be shown.


    Best regards,

    In later IC615 ISRs, you can also just use "m" for the first marker, and then "d" for a delta to the first, and another "d" to get the next delta. It leaves the last added marker selected so that the subsequent "d" adds a delta to the new point.

    Hi sgunupuri,


    Please note that the version you are using is IC615 base release. In this release the second possibility mentioned by Markus will not work as "AB marker" was introduced in the later ISRs. Also in this release when you use the first possibility that is place the two markers and highlight/mark them using "ctrl" key, you will then need to go to Marker -> Create Delta Marker to create the delta marker. The shift + "d" doesn't work. All these are fixed in later releases. I would recommend you to upgrade to the latest release.


    With Regards,
