Exclude parts from placement file?

Question asked by frc on Aug 12, 2019

Is there a way to automatically exclude parts (such as Mounting Holes and PCB-decals) from the placement file? 


In the PADS Databook, I have set the property "Part List exclude" to value "True" for certain parts. So when I make a BOM (with Part Lister) in DxDesigner, these parts are indeed excluded.


Is there a similar mechanism in Layout I can use to exclude such parts from the X-Y placement file (generated with "17 - Excel Part List Report"-script).


We use PADS standard VX.2.4 with DxDesigner and Layout with netlist flow.
