Hi guys, for some reason I am unable to add dimensions to the package sub class and a whole buch of others too. Seems like the dimension classes/sub classes have been reduced to only a few classes in the current release. Was wondering is there a way to make the classes that can hold a dimension the same as existed in 16.2
Main ones I need are
Package Geometry > Assy top, Assy BottomBoard Geometry > Assy_Detail, Assy_notesDrawing Format > Title Block
I tried a bunch of things but cant seem to make them show up.
You can add new subclass by Setup--->Subcalss , add the new subclass under respective Class ,Now open Colour Dialog box (ctrl+F5) and at the top click Global vissibility --->ON
Dimensions can be on any of the following:-
Board Geometry - Dimension, Assembly_Notes, any user defined subclass.
Drawing Format - Any user defined subclass
Manufacturing - Any user defined subclass.
In reply to steve:
Hi Guys thanks for the help on this. I figured out what was going on. I was using parameter files from a prior ver of Orcad/Allegro and these files had the subclasses I typically use. When I imported the parameter file my layers or sub-classes show up.
By default when you start 16.5 you will have a highly limited selection of classes and subclasses if you are just using a blank board "System default" but if you load up a symbol for example that had a user defined subclass on the Package Geometry class you will still be able to use that class/subclass going forward in the new editor.
Works good :)
Thanks Again Scott
