Designer Schematic and Designer Layout are basic PCB schematic and layout tools but with the addition of PartQuest, these tools out perform others in the industry with the enhancements in productivity.


My company has the full Mentor Graphics package.  I would like to use the above-mentioned Designer Schematic and Designer Layout however because it seems easier to use and learn then the full Mentor Graphics package.  I am crunched for time and need to get a PCB designed quickly and though that the streamlined Designer package would allow me to do that.  The problem is that the design needs to be archived in the company database and all official documentation is generated with that data base.  Also, we have a full-time librarian who creates all the parts for the company's layout tool.  My question is, can a design created with it be exported to the full Mentor Graphics package later?
