I'm not 100% sure but I think this was fixed in an ISR. Please check the service pack you are at. The most uptodate version 16.0 of OrCAD PCB Designer is:
Version 16.0 s050 (v16-0-87BH) (3/25/2008)

I have OrCAD PCB Designer 16.0 p006 (v16-0-87H) [6/14/2007] i86
When our licence was expiring at the end of last year, I was told there were no updates available, so I had no incentive to update the service plan that had never been used. If thatversion was from March of last year, it was available. Am I in hosed because I am no longer up to date, or is there somewhere I can go to download the service pack?
As I keep trying to sign up for SourceLink, where I hope I can download from, I get the well worded error:"System is currently having problem. Please try again later."I guess I'll keep trying.
OrCAD Customers do not have access to Sourcelink. You can get the updates from your VAR. In North America it is EMA Design Automation. If you are on current maintenance.
A Hot fix was released for OrCAD PCB Editor the current version is
16.0 S050 Dated 3/25/2008 you are running the base release. I can not be 100% sure the hotfix would correct this issue with out testing. Also version 16.2 has been released with new features.

Hi All,I am also facing the same issue. I use Allegro 16.0. After a first level investigation, I found that the drill symbols of all the through hole components placed in the bottom side of the PCB(mirrored components) are appearing in the NCdrill_figure subclass. Even if we add it in the film setup for crating an artwork including the "NCdrill_figure" subclass, the symbols will not be present in the final generated artwork. I had also tried to draw some lines in the "NCdrill_figure"subclass to checkwhether it is ignoring the entire subclass whilecreating the artwork. But, surprisingly, the lines I added manually to "NCdrill_figure"subclass appears in the art work.That is, only the drill symbols present in the "NCdrill_figure" subcalss is not getting 'exported' to the final artwork. I have no clue how to solve this. I think this is a problem with the tool itself. Allegro 15.7 doesn't have this problem because all the drill symbols are coming in the "NCdrill_figure"subclass only.NB: There is another post about this subject in the forum at

I think I have a solutin for this problem.
For 16.0 users please try the following steps (Steps below assume a 10-layer PCB). 1. Go to Setup>Subclasses2. Add a new subclass “NCLEGEND-10-1” under the “MANUFACTURING” class3. Make the “NCLEGEND-10-1” subclass visible4. Update the drill chart from “Manufacture>NC>Drill Legend”. The drill figures of mirrored TH components will appear in this subclass.5. In the film setup add the “NCLEGEND-10-1” subclass along with“NCLEGEND-1-10” subclass under the ‘FAB_DWG’ film
These steps solved the problem for me. Hope this will work for others also.
