A brand new Overlay function will be available in 2009.3 release

Discussion created by yijun_tong on Jul 24, 2009

Overlay function is generally used in the following cases:

  • Visually compare two or more layouts and verify XOR results
  • Visually assemble blocks
  • Align jobdecks for measurements


The 2009.3 Overlay will allow you to:

  • Create Overlay from "File" -> "Open layouts" menu selecting multiple layout files
  • Interactively change the alignments and transformation of each layout
  • Fine tune your alignment with coordinates from the originally layouts.  No complicated calculation of scaling/mirroring is needed.
