IC Station question

Dear Community

 

I'm posting here because I was unable to find a better subforum, I hope I'm not completely wrong

 

I recently started Layout Engineering back at University with IC Station after about 13 years with

Cadence and I'm a bit puzzled by the selection process, especially with contacts and transistor

pcells. It seems to me that after some time the glue off the pcells seems to fade and I'm able to

select sublayers of those cells, but it's getting quite hard to select the cell itself. This makes it

quite hard to get ahold off the cells itself to change properties of those cells. If I select by area I

get multiple elements and I still can't change properties. Can someone please give me a hint if

this maybe is just a problem of the PDK from our foundry or maybe a bug ??? After restart the

problem is gone and selecting is no problem for some time. We're using IC Station 2007.2 on

Solaris.

 

Thanks a lot in advance

 

Best Regards

 

Andi
