I encounter the same problem as the above.
The part type never gets written into the central library.
I changed the security access settings to READ/WRITE for everyone for the following files, all to no avail.
.lmc file, the symbolib, PADSLibs, CellDBLibs, PartsDBLibs etc.
Please help, this is becoming urgent because without the ability to add new part type to the central library,
basically we are stuck. Thank you.
Sachin, Jack - please log service requests for these issues. Your descriptions are too vague to answer here.
I import PADS library into my PADS Integrated central library (.lmc) using xDX Designer PADS Library Tool.
It resulted in a log that says the parts are skipped as they exist in the library already.
But when I searched the library, they do not exist.
See log under [E] errors, where it says creation skipped due to parts exist.
