We recently did our first design using Allegro version 16.5 and I am having problems highlighting parts when using the viewer of the same version.
In the past I could zoom in anywhere on the PCB, click the "I" icon then use find to locate the part by refdes and the highlighted part would jump to the middle of the display.
With the new version this does not happen. What is does now is zoom out so you can't find the part. I can open 16.3 PCBs in the 16.5 viewer and it works like I just described above where the part jumps to the center screen with no change in zoom. Has anybody else seen this behaviour?
I'm just the guy trying to debug PCBs in the engineering lab and this is one of the most important features I use and now it's broke....
I showed our PCB designer and she did not know how to make it work either.
I'm still on 16.3 so I'm not sure but this might be what you are looking for.
