Is it possible to convert a library in PADS9.4 to PADS 2005.2 version without placing the parts in a board file? This should be a library to library conversion. Thanks.
There is no need to convert symbols, they are backwards compatible and will work with 2005.
What data do you require, symbols are backwards compatible?
Yes Robert. I just want to know whether symbols in a library can be converted from PADS9.4 to 2005.2.
OK Thanks Robert.
Is there any possibility to convert footprints?
Sorry, Mentor did not make the PADS library converter bi-directional. The only way to take your 9.4 decal to 2005.2 is place it on a layout, export the 2005.2 ascii, import it , and save to the old library.
