I wanted to create a net with the name contains characters "!"
when i input the net name like "VSS!" , it prompts Error Not legal characters.
anyone can help on this?
thanks in advance
From the 16.2 doc set:
Net name is limited to 30 printed characters, all except ! and '
The default maximum number of characters is 30. You can set the initial
length for new designs to a maximum length of 255 by using the allegro_long_name_size environment variable (choose Setup - User Preferences (enved command)). You can change the size in existing designs by choosing Setup - Design Parameters (prmed command) and specifying a new maximum for the Long Name Size parameter in the Design tab.
In reply to BillAcito:
Thanks for the info~ yes i have found the illustration in the algrostart PDF doc,
it seems that this is a limit of Allegro.
is there a reason for this? not only the net name, but also usual text string.
