Because the maximum textblock is 64 in Allegro, when you touch the limit, how to delete the unused textblock?I have a fuction to add new textblock which follow the maximum used textblock, but when the textblock is full, I can't add new one~~~
In the Text Setup form (Setup > Test Sizes) click the Compact button. This was added on Allegro 15.1 to remove unused text blocks. See below: You could also set the environmental variable "preserve_symbol_textblocks" to prevent the creation of new text blocks when placing components when a size match is not found. Basically, with this variable set if you are using Text Block 3 in your symbols than it will use the definition in the layout for Text Block 3 vs. created a new text block which matches the definition in the symbol.Mike
No Compact button in Allegro 15.1.There are OK, Canel, Reset, Add and Help only. And preserve_symbol_textblocks is available for placement only, is it help to delete the unused textblock?
Compact button in the Text Block Setup form is there on version of Allegro 15.1 I have loaded.. Maybe it appeared during an ISR update.Lets try running the Compact command directly using SKILL. Type the following on the Allegro Command Line. skill axlDBTextBlockCompact(t)This will remove all unused textblocks from the design and echo the number of Text Blocks that were actually removed.The reason I suggested the "preserve_symbol_textblocks" variable is to prevent this in the future seeing that one of the main reasons you have so many text blocks is placing symbols that did not have a match created a new Text Block on the fly during placement.
My latest ISR is ISR200511160839_PSD151_wint_1of1.exeThe SKILL command works OK.Thanks
