I am trying to align vias on my layout and I have searched google and tried the options there but it seems the options that are suggested are not available on 22.1 version of the software (or I am just missing it). I have checked Route -> Resize/Respace but the only options I have there is "Spread Between Voids" and "Via-Via Line Flattening...". I have tried "align via" in the command prompt and it said the command is not found. I try going to Placement Edit as I would to align components but I can't select vias as an option.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
I have the 'Allegro PCB Designer' license & my Route->Resize/Respace menu has 'Align Vias' at the bottom, it runs the 'via align' command
Neither options work for me.
Hi JGrevelle, I can confirm that this feature is currently not available in the OrCAD license suite. I have tested the "via align" command here in 22.1 using various Allegro licenses and the feature is functioning well. However, the menu for this feature does not appear in the GUI when I choose OrCAD grade licenses; and the command does not prompt in the command window when I begin typing.
So, you are saying it is available on some allegro products but not the PCB Editor at this time? Do you have a list of the allegro products it does work on so I can see if I have them available to me?
Also, thank you.
Yes it is available in most Allegro PCB Editor packages, but not the OrCAD PCB Editor. Please find the following list showing this feature availability:
