Dear All, I get the skill error "SLOTTING_SKILL feature is not enabled." for this command: (lxShapeSlotting ?cv (deGetCellView) ?all nil ?slotLength 0.8 ?slotWidth 0.8 ?lSpacing 1.6 ?wSpacing 1.6 ?slotToEdge 0.2 ?shapes (list (css))). A valid shape is selected, and create->slot works from the GUI.
Elsewhere on cds support I see (lxShapeSlottingSlotting) has been enabled since IC6.1.7. My version is IC6.1.8-64b.500.9; this is Linux and I am running Layout GXL as required by the command.
How can I enable SLOTTING_SKILL in order to use (lxShapeSlotting)?
This requires 4 VLS GXL tokens to run if you're running VLS XL (I think you can also run it using VLS EAD or VLS EXL) - the licensing requirement is covered here: SKILL: How can I create the metal slots on the objects like pathSegs, paths, rectangles, polygons.
My company owns the license because the function works for someone on another project. The license in not getting 'automatically checked out and returned' as stated in the link you posted. I'll try to compare environments with the other project. Thanks for letting me know the "not enabled" message is a license issue, and not a setting I can control.
The bug referred to in 'SKILL: How can I create the metal slots on the objects like pathSegs, paths, rectangles, polygons' as "already been fixed by R&D in IC184.108.40.2060.2", has reappeared in (at least) IC6.18.090. (lxShapeSlotting) works correctly in IC6.18.160. Cadence support kindly reproduced the error, and a bug report has been submitted for IC6.18.090.
