I am trying to mirror the dimension text which I could in 16.3.
Now in 16.5 I could not find this feature anymore. Has anybody an idea how I could do that now?
The only suggestion that I have is to create a Plot File ( File > Export > IPF) and the load the plot file (.plt) back into Allegro (File > Import > IPF). This will explode the dimensions into individual elements and you will be able to mirror the text again.
You may need to realign the load plot data to the existing dimensions if they don't line up. I normally draw a crop mark at the lower left corner of data for export prior to creating the plot file so I have something easy to align with when loading the plot file back into Allegro.
Sound like you should report this to Cadence as an enhancement request.
Hope this helps,Mike CatrambonePlexus Engineering Solutions
