We have setup xPCB layout in such a way that when you open the schematic from xPCB using the "Setup -> Design Entry" command, the schematics are openend in Read-Only mode.
In this way all schematic pages are available for editing by someone else, regardless what pages I have opened.
You can open the DxDesigner project in "read only mode".
Open Menue "Setup" project select "Enable concurrent design" and fill out "Server Name"
This is a simple way to look xDx Designer project without change, while the "schematic is in readonly mode".
When you like to change the project you can "click to edit" and you can change it.
Hope it helps!
I'm surprised to read Mentor's recommendation to open schematics in read-only mode.
I thought the whole purpose of adding the capability to create a DxD View was to enable cross-probing without using up a license.
Wouldn't opening the design in "read-only" mode still use a license?
Jack you right the question was about cross probing to layout without using dxd lisence
