Is there any way of manually adding a component to an Allegro PCB design using PCB Design XL in the same way that you could in OrCad Layout.
I have been able to copy a footprint but the component is unassigned (R*) and I cannot find how to assign it a new part number and to connect nets to it. In Layout, there was a feature that allowed you to add components and manually stitch nets to them.
Yes but it's not advised........ You need at least and XL license (High Speed in 16.5 / 6) and then use Logic - Part Logic. You'll need to enable a user preference to do this. Once done the part will be avaliable to place from the Place - Manually menu (as you would normally). Then use Net Logic to add nets to the newly added part.
