    PADS color files

      Does anyone know if you can config PADS to use color files in a user configurable location instead of the files in the %SDD_HOME%/Settings directory?

          I haven't verified - but I expect the location is controlled by the 'UserDir="C:\MentorGraphics\PADSVX.2.4\SDD_HOME\Settings" setting in the powerpcb.ini file.

          However - if you change this to another location, all the other "settings" files also need to be relocated.

          I  don't think it is a good idea to change it.

            Thank you for that info! I understand your concern, and will take that under advisement. I think I can do a sneaky presto switcho for certain jobs that have a different layering than the standard setup. Hope you have a wonderful day!

              We change our UserDir to a common corporate location so everyone can select form various STD setups including colors. We have not noticed any ill effects.
