I recently saw someone open up their Library Manager and there were thumbnail images of the layout in the lower-right-hand corner, which updated every time you selected a layout cellview. Apparently they could Export Image of each layout and put the thumbnails in the right place, and the Library Manager could display these thumbnails. The guys who did this didn't know of anything special they did (such as rewrite the LibManager), and thought everybody just knew how to do it. I certainly don't know how.
Am I seeing things?? How can I take advantage of this? Actually I would like to export bitmaps of my schematics and do that. thanks!
If you use IC615 then this capability is built into the library and on by default. When a cellview is saved the thumbnail is generated or updated. There are SKILL functions to generate thumbnails and export images, such as hiGenerateThumbnails() and hiExportImage().
Which version are you using? I'm assuming older than IC615?
In reply to skillUser:
I am 6.1.5. Is it a particular ISR? Or maybe there's a .cdsenv setting? I searched the documentation with no luck. thanks a lot
In reply to GoRangers:
This has been available since IC614 (might have been earlier - I can't quite remember). The default is on, and it's controlled by these cdsenv:
ui.thumbnails enable boolean t ui.thumbnails display boolean tui.thumbnails generate boolean t
If existing libraries don't have thumbnails, then in the Library Manager you can select a library and then do Edit->Update Thumbnails.
