Hi All ,
Can any one suggest me how should i specify instance padding i am using following commands but by executing these , specified padding is not appllied for the instance after placement.
specifyInstPad <instancename> 2
Hmm. I'd suspect one of 2 things. Either the overall density is so high that the padding can't be honored. Or that some other placement setting is taking precedence over the instance padding. If the overall density is moderate (<95%) I'd try an experiment where I cleared out all non-default placement settings (setPlaceMode -reset), applied the instance padding, and ran a simple placeDesign. Let us know what you find! Sounds like an interesting puzzler.
PS You're always free to file a service request and if you can provide a testcase we'll be able to pin it down. Thanks for using the forums!
