I've been away from Allegro for three years and I'm trying to remember how to copy a circuit (parts, etch and planes) with intelligence from one board to another. I'd rather not put the circuit together manually using a clipped sub-drawing... I'm trying the plctxt commands and having problems. When I type "run plctxt_out" on the command line I get error "Run returned non-zero status =-127." When I type "run plctxt", it crashes Allegro. I am using 16.5 I know I've done this before...help remembering how?
In reply to oldmouldy:
Remembering the tools in the menu is a... Thanks for the edit>export>placement (duh). Would have been nice if the help documentation about plctxt would have mentioned that as an option.
The PDF documentation...what is the installation you are referring to and where do I find the paths to those documents (doc/pcomms and doc/algroplace)?
That will lead me to the documentation about the Placement Edit Application. That sounds like the process I need to try.
Thanks for your time...
