1. In schematics,layout,symbol: when i click on some component, it gets selected; but when i click on another component, that one gets selected, however; first one is still selected. How can i make previous selection disappear once i click every new item?
2. To deselect all i press Ctrl+D, how can i make it happen so that to deselect all i just click on an empty space?
Can you try like following format.
hiSetBindKey("Schematics" "None<Btn1Down>" "schSingleSelectPt()" )
hiSetBindKey("Layout" "None<Btn1Down>" "mouseSingleSelectPt()")
My guess is that you're using some bindkeys as supplied in an IBM PDK - they tend to have this selection behaviour. If my memory is correct, you can just comment out the loading of their bindkeys if you prefer the "standard" bindkey behaviour - or you can override using the bindkeys suggested by Sarvani.
Yes Andrew, you are right, thank you.
IBM provides two sets of bindkeys, one that is their customizations and one that is derived from Cadence IC defaults. I believe they are called bindKeys.il and bindKeyCDS.il, and are located somewhere in the Cadence library of the PDK.
