Does anyone know if it is possible to set a variable in the env file so that Allegro looks in one place for .color (view) files insted of the local directory.
You can set the path: Setup\User Preferences\Config\viewpath
In reply to DawnC:
Or you and your team could use the site setup.
Define an env variable named "cds_site" with a path value like x:\development\cadence
Now you get a shared setup for all users with default paths for lots of stuff inside a subpath named pcb
place shortcuts (alias and funckeys) in x:\development\cadence\pcb\site.env file (you can also override default installation paths in this file) Notice that the setup in this file is read before the individual users env file, so local setup will override the settings in site.env
Also copy the folder structure from inside %cdsroot%\share\local\pcb to x:\development\cadence\pcb
This will give you the a number of directories for storing site team wide setups (read the readme.txt inside the share\local\pcb folder)
Amongst the directories is a views subfolder for .color files.
I hope this helps.
In reply to Ejlersen:
where can i find the colorview create.il? is there any in allegro? because i only found colorview create form...
please help. thank you
Thank you. Some of my color files get edited to be board specific and all of those still carry the same names. Those I will keep with individual projects. However, I have created a folder for the universal color files, moved them to that folder, set up the path and tested it. Good stuff. While being nowhere near a new designer (first board designed in 1978) I have "only" been using this tool for about 9 years and still find it less-intuitive than other tools I have used in the past. I peruse this forum regularly both to help where I can and to learn new things about the tool and your post has done that. Again I say thanks.
