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.
Logic – Startup File definition
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:
- Set up what you want for a template design
- <File><Export>(select *.asc) and save it to:
- < File><Export>(select *.txt) and save it to:
(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.
Click the button and then read the page about ‘Creating New Special Symbols’.
