Symbol Editor in xDX Designer VX.1.1

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.
