Hopefully Dave Elder reads this ?
I am running Allegro 16.5 S018 and tried to run the autosilkUtils.il SKILL script.
Everything seems to work except it does not put the DRCs into the walker popup window.
Hopefully someone can fix this ?
This is a great tool
In reply to eDave:
I saw this post and I tried using your skill. It seems that I can get the file to load, but can't get it to run. Am I missing a step somewhere? I've attached the image of the command line. I can run other skill files just fine also.
I am on 16.3
Please advise at your convenience.
I like to add that version 8.24 I found on an older post is working.
I downloaded the skill script copied to project folder.
Running script using below command
skill load "autosilkUtils.il "
script is running but i am not finding any difference in silk arrangement.
Please let me know whether steps i have followed is correct.

Dave Elder, Tait Communications
Sorry to trouble you again.
Can u send me file with instruction in header.
I am not finding any instruction in the file what i have.
You are correct. Iinstructions are not in the header.
Place the context file in your skill folder.
Add loadContext("AutosilkUtils_public16.5.cxt") to the allegro.ilinit file in your pcbenv folder.
Add axlCmdRegister("silkutils" 'ASU_start ?cmdType "interactive") to the allegro.ilinit file.
Run "silkutils" on the Allegro command line.
Firstly, use the attached code for 16.3.
Unzip it and place it in the skill folder underneath the folder defined by your allegro_site environment variable. (You may need to create the folder).
Create the allegro.ilinit file (in the same folder) if it doesn't exist.
Add the two lines:
axlCmdRegister("silkutils" 'ASU_start ?cmdType "interactive")
As per your advice i created folder as shown below in C drive, Created allegro.ilinit & placed skill file with in that
C:\Cadence\SPB_16.3\allegro_site environment variable\autosilkUtils_public
After this i loaded script in allegro
still not able to progress further....
