I am looking for commands in Encounter that will group cells together in close proximity, but I can't seem to find them. The commands would be similar to magnet_placement, create_rp_group, and add_to_rp_group in IC Compiler.
Can someone give me the names of the commands or a script that would have a similar effect?
createInstGroup & addInstToInstGroup - if your current logical heirarchy does not reflect the required grouping.
createSoftGuide & setPlaceMode -softGuideStrength will cluster your placement.
