I just got a new computer and a new install for 16.6 software program.
Having trouble setting up the above to view footprints in schematic capture.
In PCB EDITOR user preferences I have set the paths to my symbol libraries.
In my capture.ini file I have the following entry;
Dir0=P:\a_PCB_Design\CADENCE PCB DESIGN\SYMBOLS\CAPS
If I select a cap in the schematic file and RMB, show footprint, I get the following error message;
Could not find padstack.... Cannot open the design database file, unable to open CAP0603.psm
I have read many posts on this topic but still unable to figure it out.
In this post there is a typo.
[Allegro Pootprints] should be [Allegro Footprints] is it that way in your ini file?
