I am a new user of xDX designer VX.1.1 which I have as a PADS netlist flow. I do not have a PADS layout tool.
I have successfully linked a sample netlist library to my project but now I would like to add and/or edit the schematic symbols. I have
several components that would need added, but I just want to create symbols that a layout service bureau will complete with cells, padstacks etc..
So when I go to FILE-- NEW --- Library Symbol (or Local Symbol) the Symbol Editor tool
opens. But the Symbol Editor window is all gray and has no functionality.
So my questions are the following:
1) Is there another way to create/edit symbols in xDX designer? Am I doing it correctly?
2) Do I have to have a license for the PADS layout tool in order to create symbols?
Thank you for your time.
