I'm moving your post to the 'PADS Front-end Design' community, so that fellow PADS designers can help you out.
Thanks for your help. I tried it, but for some reason when I assigned the decal it wouldn't change the pkg_type attribute of the symbol. I had to manually type it in.
I did get it to work, but I think it's because the symbol wasn't being saved to the correct location.
Glad you got it working. And I have seen the issue you had before. I will work with the Pads team to see if this is a Defect that needs to be looked into.
This could also be a issue with the pads93.cfg file. At least one version had some lines that should be commented out.
Around line 107
|PKG DEVICE <Place a pipe in front of this line
and around line 339
|PKG DEVICE "Part Type" <Place a pipe in front of this line
|PKG PKG_TYPE Decal <Place a pipe in front of this line
I have also attached the file I use, look for gjl to see the commented out lines.
