How to link DxDatabook to two layout tools- Expedition and PADS?

Hi, I am currently using DxDatabook to link the DxD symbol with Expedition footprint.


Is it possible to use the same DxDatabook database to link the DxD symbol to PADS decal? I would like to maintain only one database, and they could point to two layout tools. For Expedition, it is using PDB to do the pin mapping, so, when we add the DxD symbol into schematic, we click on the checkbox 'Get pin numbers from PDB'. How does this work when DxDatabok deal with PADS decal? Where should we do the pin mapping?


Hope to get some help here..Thanks!
