    Attach signal name to part in Capture and display in Allegro Reply

    How to add text (net name) to a part in Capture and show it as silkscreen in Allegro?

    I tried to create a new property to a part in Capture, e.g. PART_TEXT and add one line under [ComponentInstanceProps] in allegro.cfg file, PART_TEXT=YES. But this property can't transfer to Allegro.

    What is the right way should I do?

    Does the property get included into the Allegro netlist file?

    Try setting up the property PART_TEXT in the Allegro .brd and then re-transfer the netlist into Allegro - here are the steps:

    1) in Allegro go to Setup > Property Definitions
    2) Enter PART_TEXT in Name edit box
    3) Click on Apply
    4) Select appropriate 'element' and data type (string should work)
    5) Save the .brd
    6) Import the netlist
