Could you please help to answer how to slow it in Dxdesigner (PADS 2007) version?
The option isn't available in that version of the software.
I tried this and I was not able to get it to copy over the refdes values. Any other suggestions?
Please open SR and Customer Support will assist you to figure out why the procedure does not work for you.
I have tested this with the PADS 9.4 and 9.5 version of the software and it is working as expected. You say you're using method suggested on here, but don't say how you're doing the copy. In my case I have two sessions of DxDesigner running and perform Copy and Paste between the two sessions.
For some reason I was able to get it to work this morning. No particular reason why it all of a sudden started working, I just went through the procedure again.
Thanks for the help.
