Sure can. Edit the symbols (ORcrap symbols that you converted to Allegro), and change the PLACE_BOUND_TOP to the "actual" size of the part. I'm guessing the translation expanded the boundry. Next, create a text file (like UPDATE_SYMS.lst), and add the symbol names you've changed. Next, in Allegro, do PLACE/UPDATE_SYMBOLS; check the symbol list (browse to your file); and update the symbols. If your constraints are set right, your errors should go away.Originally posted in cdnusers.org by cadpro2k
I know it sounds long, and drawn out, but it's fairly painless to do 10-15 parts. I do that on almost all my converted drawings (mostly coming from PADS). Also helps to have a 'generic' symbol library to pull from, so you don't have to continually mod common parts.
