Hi All, I'm looking to migrate to DxD from PADS Logic interfacing to PADS layout. I also have experience of Design Capture in previous employment.
In both PADS Logic and Design capture, there is a concept of symbols and then parts. In this case a symbol that is re-used many times (resistors etc) can be re-used without being re-drawn.
In DxD there is only concept of symbols which means that for resistors (quite a few), I have to re-draw (or copy) the symbol each time. There is an additional issue, that if I want to adjust a symbol (i.e. text placement) then I have to do it for each symbol for DxD vs. just once for PADS logic or Design Capture.
Since Mentor are pushing people onto DxD, am I missing something here since the lack of symbol / parts distinction seems a backward step.
