how can back annotate the position of the placed component from PCB Editor to Orcad Capture?
In the old ORCAD LAYOUT with back annotation with the old layout I could find all the updated parameters such as position, fixed proprerty, nets thickness, ...
how can I do?
When you use Tools - Back Annotate, Layout tab make sure you browse for the pickdata,swp. Once done change the edit properties find filter to Current Properties then look for Pick_X, Pick_Y, Pick_Mirror, Pick_Rotation. These are the fields that are back annotated from PCB Editor.
You will not be able to use these fields in a new design to place parts though. These are just for information purposes. If you need to reuse the placement either use the Place Replication mode (there are posts about this) or use File - Export - Placement from the design you wish to copy or export a sub-drawing, then import these into a new design.....
