I have been using the DxDesigner link in PADS to ECO my boards from the schematic. I wonder if someone could outline the important properties that get moved from DxDesigner to PADS and what properties go where. For example, I have been putting the name of the decal that I want to use in the DEVICE and PKG_TYPE properties, and one of those seems to work to place/update the decal, but I think I could be making much better use of the symbol properties.
Another question, do people typically ECO the design rules (clearance, trace width, etc.) back into DxDesigner, or is that left in the PADS design?
