I have been using Cadence virtuoso & now shifted to Mentor IC station (v9.0_3.0)
I am trying for edit in place for a subcell placed in heirachical layout.
I select the subcell, peek into the subcell & set the context.
But the context name on the menu doesn't change & to confirm in which hierarchy am I,
if I press select-All, it selects everything from the top heirarchy..
Can anyone please tell me if I have missed any step for edit in place option.
You don't seem to be missing any steps. In fact you should be able to set your context even without selecting the cell first. Will you let us know if the problem seems to go away, or if you find the cause of the problem?
