We were going to make use of pad entry rules, until I found out that the rules cannot be set in the cell. In other words, they have to be set on a job by job basis, so you may end up setting the pad entrey rules for, say, an 0603 resistor, every single time you add it in into a job. An utterly bizarre decision (Why would your pad entry rules vary from job to job? )
This is always the same in the EE Flow. All definitions are design based. But the root cause for pad entry rules are the pads on the cells.
Also for us many features are not usable due to this fact.
I want to be able to define cell specific how pads should be connected. The task is not to connect a pad, the task is to connect a pad in a specific environment inside the cell.
