*Keep all footprints in one folder (.dra .psm .pad ..etc)
*Give the folder path in in padpath & psmpath
In reply to DawnC:
I've set my Capture.ini file as follow:
[Part Management]Configuration File=$CDSROOT\tools\Capture\Samples\BENCHACC.DBCDemoConfiguration File=$CDSROOT\tools\Capture\Samples\DemoBENCHACC.DBC[Footprint Viewer Type]Type=Allegro[Allegro Footprints]Dir0=C:\Cadence\SPB_16.6\share\pcb\pcb_lib\symbolsDir1=C:\SincronieGroove\Hardware_2\_DDLibrary\symbols[Symbol Selector Configured Libraries]Library0=C:\Cadence\SPB_16.6\tools\Capture\Library\PSpice\source.olbNumber of Configured Libraries=1
but I can see only the footprint present in the first path (directory number zero, as default) and I coulden't see the footèprint in my own directory.
Can someone help me? Thanks
In reply to NicoDD:
Is the path a valid directory ? What happens if you swap them round ? Also check the session log in Capture, it normally has a log of if there are any issues with paths or footprints.
In reply to steve:
the path is valid and the footprint is ok. I try also to put temporarily a copy of a footprint from the DIR 0 in the DIR 1 path and it works.
When I select "Show Footprint" command I recived this message in the Session Log:
ERROR(ORCAP-1733): Allegro footprint SW_DPDT_1 was not found in the search path
where "SW_DPDT_1" is the name of my footprint.
thanks for your help
The ini file settings are for Capture CIS so you can see the footprint. If you want to use RMB - Show Footprint then this takes the settings defined in the %HOME%\pcbenv folder. Start PCB Editor, go to Setup - User Preferences - Paths - Library and define the psmpath so that it points to your Dir1 location (as well as the defaults). Then you should be able to see the footprints.
I had already defined this property, but still don't work... I'm don't know why...
I've in the psmpath Items also:
nobody have other ideas?

In reply to PHMISTRY:
This error indicates that you do not have a part defined for the PCB Footprint property. Select the part and use rmb - edit properties (or double click). You'll see the properties for the part. Locate the PCB Footprint property and add a name for a footprint that matches the pcb footprint in the paths specified like 0603, soic8 etc.
Every part see this type empty foot print..........
In this images you can see see all the things but the foot print is missing............
