After having made hundreds of DRA files as library symbols I want to be able to manually place them.When I go to do this the directory 'manual place' is looking in appears to be 'c:/cadence/spb_15.5/share/pcb/pcb_lib/symbols' trouble is I cannot find anywhere or way of changing the directory its looking in?? Am I looking for something that isn't there? Whats the best way of getting the system to point directly at the directory of my choosing.TIA
In Allegro's User Preferences under the "Design Paths" category change the psmpath to point to yournew library path by adding it here, and then move the path to the top of the list.This is the default list Allegro will look for your library symbols, also make sure the PADPATH is defined correctly for yourpadstacks.When you place the part you can turn on the Advanced setting option "Display definitions from library" to make it look from all your library symbols or turning this OFF will make the tool just use the symbols loading into the design by the logic import.
Thanks!!I had already set the path correctly on psmpath, what I didn't realise was I had to move it up. The top line was $psmpath which I assume is some sort of default. I've moved mine above that and it works fine.
Great, Press the "expand" button in this form and you will see where the $psmpath is pointing to..
