PADS Integrated Flow with DxDataBook

Looking a making the jump from DxDesigner Netlist flow to the PADS Integrated flow for our design team?

Has anyone made a successful transition? Was it very difficult for you? Any problems that you ran into?

What are the pros and cons of moving to the Integrated flow?

I have been playing with the netlist to integrated library conversions and it has been a headache. Most of the hetro part must be redone and don't migrate over without extra work.

I have some duel symbols that share a common pin between the two instances and this will no longer work. I am told that each instance must have a different symbol in a central library.

Please share any of your experience with this whole process.
