Does anyone have some SKILL code that will clear silkscreen lines back x distance from pins, either as a group or individually? I want to use this during footprint building. Currently I have to use delete and cut to remove pieces of lines that run through pads.

Thanks for finding that bug :-)
See the attached, hopefully improved, version.

It works great ... but the only small issue is, still it was not working for silkscreen bottom.
Thanks & Regards,
This version will also prompt you if you pass nil for either of the values.
Its working but i think for silkscreen bottom also it is taking the soldermask top as reference.....
Thanks & Regards,
Thanks for your help, it works perfect,... :)
Actually in our Libray the footprints will have the silkscreen same as assembly line so i have one script which will copy the assembly top and change to silkscreen top (and also line width from 0.1 mm to 0.254 mm) and after placing the silkscreen exactly on the assembly i am using your Context file which clears the silkscreen on pads, can i link this script file and context file or can we have a code in Context file itself which will copy the assembly to silkscreen first (and also line width from 0.1 mm to 0.254 mm)and places the silkscreen exactly on the assembly and runs the silkscreen cleanup next....?
Use: axlCmdRegister("assembly lines to silk" 'EDAVE_assemblyToClearPinSilk ?cmdType "interactive")
You can vary the parameters by adding them to the end of the command in the order: silk width, clearance, minimum length. If you enter "nil" for any these the user will be prompted for a value. eg:
assembly lines to silk 0.25 nil
Wow.... it works great :)
Thanks for your help in clearing all my issues.. really now my task was soo easy...
In cadence silkscreen utility it was copying to manufacture Autosilk & losing linking connection with the symbol !
This works great .Thanks
