    Hello all - I recently installed the latest hotfix for 16.6 S007 (v16-6-112AC).  Now when I open a design I receive the message I've illustrated below.  Although this does not appear to affect anything else I don't know the meaning of this message.  Can anyone clue me in?

    It indicates that Z-Axis Delay has been enabled in the design on a higher tier, namely Allegro PCB Designer w/High Speed Option.

    Z-Axis delay functionality will add the depth (distance) the signal travels down the via or pins holes when checking for length/delay calculations which is not supported in OrCAD PCB Designer Professional.

    If you want to include the Z-Axis delay functionality then you need to open the design using Allegro PCB Designer w/High Speed Option license.  If you have no plans on adding in the Z-Axis to the delay calculations then you can turn it off using Setup > Constraint > Modes under the Electrical Options category (using Allegro PCB Designer w/High Speed Option license) or on the lower tier license select the Update to Tier button under the Tiering tab of File > Properties.

    Hope this helps,
    Mike Catrambone
