I have added a die to a blank APD design using the text-in wizard. This die has similar functionality to a new design coming down the road. My plan was to take this die and move the functional blocks to different location on the die so I can do some early route feasibility. The problem is I can't figure out how to rotate a block of pins. Is this possible?
You haven't mentioned what version of the tool you are using,but if you are in 16.5 or 16.6, you can use the "Symbol Edit" application mode. If your die has the LOCKED property on it, remove it and/or enable locked component editing through the user preferences menu.
Once you've done that, it's as simple as selecting the group of pins and doing an RMB -> Move. You can then rotate them as a group around the reference point of your choice. Doing so will update the symbol definition as well, so your changes willbe recorded in future die text files you export, library symbols you generate, and so forth.
I'm using 16.6. I did get the answer thru support. The trick is the rotation point has to be "user pick", no other rotation point works.
