If the Symbol in Capture has more pins than the Footprint in PCB Editor,
you will have to add the following:
In the allegro.cfg file under [ComponentDefinitionProps] add
In Capture, go to the Symbol then select:
Options>User Properties>New>Name > PINCOUNT > Value > "number of pins of the Footprint", OK,OK, Save.
Unfortunately you will have to do this for every Symbol who's corresponding Footprint pincounts
donot match. Also if you have a Symbol used for 2 different Footprints who's pincounts are different,
such as a thru hole power transistor mounted both vertically and horizontally, with the horizontally
having 4 pins & the vertical having 3pins, you will need to make 2 different Symbols.
Our company was using Orcad Layout and just purchased PCB Editor. We just finished converting all of our Capture Symbols,
not a small job.
