I am new to PCB Editor 16.5 coming from Orcad Layout 15.7. I have been using Orcad products to do pcb layouts since it first came out back in the 80's. I would consider myself an expert user in Orcad Layout. I have found the transition to 16.5 to be nothing short of painful and I am looking for some guidance to help ease the pain..........
Any tips / lessons learned from folks that have successfully made this jump would be appreciated.

Thanks for reply steve,
Indeed, I meet the same problem with TH. If I change one padstack, all the others may get changed at the same time. I look at the website, but nothing over this issue. TH also talked about type 11 keys./forums/T/22665.aspx
Could do give me some suggestion about how to change a single one padstack without affect the others. Thanks
In reply to Leeya:
When you change the padstack (Tools - Modify Padstack) there are options for Instance (just that padstack) or Defintion (all padstacks of the same name). Look at the Options fold out menu on the right hand side. You can also select the padstack and use RMB - Change Padstack - Selected instances and then choose the new pad from the list.
