    Add via option in padstack editor is grayed out

    ldogle

      I need to add some vias in the design.  I have a integrated project that I have done and I need to add a couple of vias for routing and pouring now.

       

      The add via button is greyed out.  How do we add the additional vias?  In a old "normal" design we have full control.  Is it dictated on the front end in xDX ?

       

      Thanks,

          "add a couple of vias for routing and pouring" - in Layout, select the net, and then <right-Click><add Via>

           

          You can add a via in the design (i.e. Layout).  You can't define a via for a part (i.e. Part/padstack editor).  If you want a thru-hole pad (i.e. a via) in a part it needs to be defined as a terminal. 

           

          Note that everything I've said is in Layout.. are you trying to update your part/library in xDxD?
