Hi all, anyone aware of how to change the properties (thickness, color, etc ...) of the selection box in Composer ?
The 'properties' (thickness and color) for the selection box in the Cadence Symbol Editor come form the system layer purpose pair (lpp) 'instance drawing', which is assigned to the display packet 'red' in the technology file. If you want to change the thickness and color of them you have to assign a other display packet to 'instance drawing' lpp in your technology file. But this changes the color appearance of every shape drawn with thelpp 'instance drawing' no mater if it is for symbols selection box,or any other stuff in schematics or layouts.Or modify the display packet 'red' in the display.drf or your local display.drf file. But this will chance the appearance of every layerpurpose pair which is assinged to the display packet 'red'.Bernd
how does it work when you create a library without a techfile ?
Also is there any way to do that by using SKILL ?
If you create a library without a tech file, or without attaching it to a techfile, it gets automatically attached to a library called cdsDefTechLib - which contains all the system layers - such as instance/drawing. So it is no different.Andrew.
