We have improved the process to import parts into PADS for PartQuest for VX.2.7
There is now a new setup command in Designer Schematic Tools >PartQuest Settings.
Then just import the part with Designer >Tools >Import PartQuest Parts
The importer will look for and import an edx file that is normally in your web browser download directory.

If you haven't seen the webinar on using the new Search, now might be a good time to review it. PADS Designer schematic is being enhanced!
