Good afternoon all,
I recently had to change my solder mask layers from 5mils larger than the pad to 6mils for the board house. All the pads are updated and I can open each library part and refresh the pads one at a time, but does anyone know a way to select the library and update all the padstacks at once?
There is a way. Take a look Cadence Solution 11175824.

Good morning Steve,
Thank you for the answer, however I am not sure how to find the solution you mentioned. I selected the solutions header and pasted the number in the search, but it came up empty. Could you please let me know how to locate the solution or paste a link.
In reply to KEN13:
Log into COS (support.cadence.com) then enter 11175824 in the Search window
Unfortunately I am registered on this help site and when I tried to sign in on the COS(support....) it said my password was wrong. I selected the forgot password and had a temporary emailed to myself. After I followed the steps and selected a new password, it says I still need to register. The process to register requires the IT dept. which is undergoing changes. Is the solution something you could post here?
Thank you again for the help,
Hi Ken - Contact either Cadence or the Channel Partner you bough the software from and they should be able to give you access to COS which will give you access to this solution.
It ends up I do not have to update the library footprints. When the footprint is placed on a board the padstacks update automatically to the defined padstacks. So I can update the library at a later time.
