How to lock the grid in VX2.1 in Draw mode for planes and for assembly outline and placement outline for cell items. Setup => Edit Control does not work for if I define Drawing grid.
For some reason it is only available in the select mode.
The select mode allows you to select all object types so it will select (& move) all the selected objects
I do not see this option in Cell Editor VX2.1. "Enabe the 'Draw object Snap Grid' on the draw edit toolbar" Question is same. Is it possible to lock the Assembly outline and Placement outline with the Draw Grid set in the Editor Control ?
Ah sorry I added the icon on the draw edit toolbar but by default it is on the draw create toolbar.
This setting to enable/disable draw object grid snap is not availiable in the editor control.
Hi, I found this option but it does not make any difference. The Assembly outline and Placement outline are still not locked to the grid size.
enable the 'Draw object Snap Grid' at the top of the list and then click it on the toolbar to enable the draw object grid snap.
It should then look like this:
For some reason it is not by default on the draw create toolbar even though it sometimes get disabled.
I added it from the list but still it is not activated in the toolbar.
How to lock Placement and Assembly outline with the grid in Cell Editor ? In which document it is described ?
How to move a group of pads (or pins) to a location whose coordinates can be entered by user ? This can be done for single pad or pin by right click and chose padstack properties but how to move them in a group to a particular location ?
For the placement and assembly outline grid in the cell editor it is the first icon that needs to be active (orange):
To move a group of pins to a specific location:
(can use the keyin pc -s x,y or draw a line, set the coordinates on one of the vertices and then right click → snap → place snap point)
Another option is to calculate how much the pins have to move in the X and Y direction and use the keyin 'ms dx=x,y'
This command 'ms dx = 500,0' gives error as marked in the figure
Thank you matthias.cosaert, now it works as you described above.
