I am new to PCB Editor 16.5 coming from Orcad Layout 15.7. I have been using Orcad products to do pcb layouts since it first came out back in the 80's. I would consider myself an expert user in Orcad Layout. I have found the transition to 16.5 to be nothing short of painful and I am looking for some guidance to help ease the pain..........
Any tips / lessons learned from folks that have successfully made this jump would be appreciated.
When routing in OrCad PCB Designer and I want to jump onto another layer I must either right click and select a layer from the "Change Alternate Layer" or select the new layer from the options menu. I was curious if anyone knew if I could create a function key in ENV FILE? (C:\SPB_Data\pcbenv))
After reading your posts I was able to get this command from the command window. (pop dyn_option_select 'Change Alternate Layer@:@INNER2')
Funckey l pop dyn_option_select 'Change Alternate Layer@:@INNER2'
When I apply it to the ENV File and reload PCB Editor. Nothing happens when I am routing a new trace.
Am I doing something wrong?
Also is there a command that would allow me to cycle through all my "Alternate layers"?
