There's two things I really miss from using Altium, one is the excellent find/replace and the other Smart Paste. I haven't been able to find a way to do Smart Paste, and it makes schematics extremely tedious. I've spent the last hour and a half looking for some kind of tcl/tk script that does even any part of the functionality of Atlium's Smart Paste, but I can't find anything.
What I want is, for example, the ability to copy a bunch of net Aliases, and automatically generate offpage connectors or ports with the same names. There are some tricks to speed up this process that I've been able to find, but they're all just hacks around what Altium has offered for years.
Where are all the community tcl/tk scripts? Someone must have written something like this before? Why isn't Cadence adding this kind of functionality?
there have a tools named EDAisWARE_CoolEditBox-1_0 for free. you could use it.
Thank you so much. Exactly what I needed. Only problem is I can't figure out how it's supposed to be installed. I have 16.6, 17.2, and 17.4 installed.
The installer isn't adding something to C:\Cadence\SPB_17.4\tools\capture\tclscripts\capAutoLoad, which I am familiar with.
If memory serves me correctly this is installed either in your %HOME%\cdssetup\tclscripts folder (which would then work for any version or %HOME%\cdssetup\OrCAD_Capture\version\tclscripts for a specific version. It may also go into %HOME%\MarketPlaceSkillApps so you'll have to check your installation.
