Hello,The tool I am using is Orcad16.0. Is there any way to delete the pins of symbol? *we can modify the footprint( .DRA) file and can update in .BRD fileBut my problem is I am converting a design from PADS to ORcad. In PADS design there are few Relays has got 8 pins. But pin number assigned as 1,2,5,8,9,12,15,16 and other pins(3,4,6,7,10,11,13,14)not placed.When I imported in Orcad, its getting all 16 pin for that relay and due to appearance of unconnected pins its getting lots of error. Then I exported design to linrary to get all footprint. I modified related footprint and uploded, but its reporting error about missed pin because i have removed unconnected pins from that footprint.Can anybody please suggest me to remove unconnected pins ?
I am not an expert but I tell you the procedure which I follow.
We can not save component with missing pin numbers(may be I am Wrong) so I create part in orcad with serial wise numbering like 1,2,3.4 and in the pin name option put the actual pin number 1,2,5,8,9,12,15,16 , then you can save the part.
May be it'll help you.

You are right if we are having orcad schematic and netlist file. But I have PADS ( .ASCII)netlist file. I checked that file, it doesn't have any information about unplaced pins. I dont know what is the reason that Orcad taking unconnected pin automatically even that detatils are not in netlist file.
In PADS they have used only 1,2,5,8,9,12,15,16. and other pins are not there. But when I took that file in Orcad, automatically its assigning some pads to left out pins (3,4,10,11,13,14).itself. It should not.
