Allegro System Architect (ASA) also known as System Connectivity Manager (SCM) allows you to generate a schematic for your logical design. You can use the generated schematic for documentation purposes, or for communicating various aspects of the design to your team members or customers and for exporting it as an independent DEHDL design. Though the generated schematic is mainly for documentation purposes, for aesthetic purposes you can modify component placements and these can be preserved while regenerating the documentation schematic. The contents on the documentation schematic can be controlled using various setup options.
Several Placement Improvements
I look forward to your input on how you're using these new SPB16.3 features!

Good point Tim.
Depending upon the parts and connectivity between parts on a given sheet, you will get wires drawn between the pin stubs. The first goal of the ASA schematic generator is to provide the connectivity. You can then go into the desired page(s) and move parts so their closer - then a wire will be connected to the pin stubs. It's not optimal, but it can be done.
When will the schematic generator connect components on the same sheet rather than just plopping down each symbol with net names?
I had this feature (i.e. connected symbols) on a lesser tool > 25 years ago.
