i need to create custom off page connector symbol in pads logic and let me know what is mean by logic icon while creating library ??
Off page connectors are defined in the $OSR_SYMS part type found in the Common library unless you've moved it to your own library.
'Logic icon' refers to any PADS Logic symbol in the library that isn't a 'Line' such as borders, notes, logos, etc.
Edit $OSR_SYMS and it should make sense from there.
Thanks for your reply.let me know what is lines ?? i found some template sheet is available let me know how to create the template sheet ??
For creating custom offpage i need to create in parts option ?? how to create special symbol ?? instead of edit and copy method.
Lines are non-connected things that you show on the schematic, like borders, titleblocks,stack up notes, etc. You can just draw them on the schematic, but if you want to save them in a library then the get saved as lines. You access them with 'Add 2D Line from Library'.
Do you mean a template sheet that is opened when PADS Logic starts up? Here is an old note that I have that I believe is still valid.
To set the file that opens automatically when Logic is started, you need to export it <File><Export> (select all) and save it as the default file:
(I don't recall why I had to save both the ASC and TXT files; it may require only one. Let me know what you figure out)
I believe the only way to add off page symbols is by editing $OSR_SYMS. You create a special symobl for $OSR_SYMS just like you create any other symbol in the SCH Decal editor.
thanks for your reply.i am trying to create off page connector.if i trying to create in Parts (like symbol creation path)it is not creating .i could not add symbol
or else is it possible to convert the allegro library to pads library ???because i created this off page connector symbol in allegro.
Click the button and then read the page about ‘Creating New Special Symbols’.
i could not understand which botton i need to click
Was that so hard? ; ) Welcome to PADS easy to use help files!
Thanks Jduquette,i followed below steps it is working
Tip: For left side off-page references, select Source, for right side, select Load.7.Click OK.
Tip: In the schematic, the net connection point will be the origin of the symbol.
