Is there any straightforward way of somehow converting or translating or import/export between PADS Professional and Xpedition VX.1 in terms of schematic, library and the pcb (vice versa)?
To convert the library you must export the source in the EDX format then import this to the destination library using Import EDX, I believe this is documented in the on-line help for the library tools.
Once the library is converted you can import the design by firstly creating a new Xpediition project and then use File Import PADS Professional. Set the library pointer in the project to the one you converted earlier.
Thank you for your reply. I appreciate it very much.
However, I encounter a license error when I try to use the import/export EDX.
I am using the xDM Librarian 100.
It seems you need following license. It is already available in some suite, bundle licenses. (PADS Standard, Plus, Professional etc.) If you already have this license, maybe you need license software upgrade etc. to correcly serve this feature.
I got confused. Pads professional just is xPCB Layout, so you don't need any translation between Pads Pro and ExpeditonPCB.
Am I wrong?
A simple migration process is required to move the project between the two tools. You must also migrate the Central Library using EDX import/export.
Migration help is available within the Help files and SupportNet.
