    Symbol Editor in xDX Designer VX.1.1

    ryb8723

      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.
