I currently use Edit-> browse parts to find parts. I leave that tab open.
Is there another faster way to engage a find function and just type in the part reference?
Yes - there is an Edit - Find command....
I have my schematic open. I click Edit , Find and nothing happens. When I do Ctrl F, nothing happens either. I tried several other commands in the Edit menu and they seem to work.
So what version are you using? I have 17.4-2019 S007 and when i do that I get the Find window appear on the right hand side of the Capture window.
I have orcad capture CIS version 17.2-2016
I have a Ctrl F hotkey in my c:\spb_data\pcbenv\env for usage in Allegro. Should that override the Capture Ctrl F?

I commented out the Ctrl F in the env file. The Find still does not work in the Capture. Now, the Ctrl F I added for Allegro does not do anything anymore.
