    You have to add the additional Gerber Film layers to your design. In Allegro, we simply create (Add new layer) in the film control a new Film Layer; display what we want for the gerber layer; then do a "Match Display" for that Film Layer.
    I'm not sure about Orcad PCB

    The "Add" button lets you load a previously saved file of settings, basically a list of axlCreateFilm statements. Use RMB>Add to add the "other" films to your output, select just the other films and use RMB>Save within the tree control, this will save a file with your settings for the "other" films. On your next design, you can then use the "Add" button to load the saved definitions for the "other" films.

    I believe Bob is speaking about the "Load" button at the bottom of the form which allows you to load in saved film records.

    The "Add" button allows you to add a new film record to the film control form. The film record will be added with the class/subclasses that are currently visible - you can use the visibility to determine what you want in the film record prior to adding it.
