    Is it possible show origin in Allegro Reply

    Is it possible to turn on a visual indicator of where the origin of a design, symbol etc. is in Allegro. Something in the setup? I'm currently a PADS user and we are looking to change to Allegro and I am demoing the software. In PADS the origin is always visible and can easily be moved.

    Thanks
    Tim

    As far as I know there is not the facility to view an origin or datum as such. But, when you create a symbol,you can put a feature on any subclass of your choice e.g. a small cross or a circle. This would then be visible within allegro should you choose to view it from the color pallete. The subclass you choose can be one of the ones already present by default or you could make one of your own which would automatically come through into the database.

    In addition, you can always see the x/y position of the cursur in the lower right hand corner of the Allegro GUI.

    The origin can easily be moved by using the pull-down menu Setup => Drawing Size, Move Origin
