Hi there,


We have a third party symbol creation tool for large pin count parts called SymXpert.  It does a pretty good job creating symbols but there are a couple of things that it doesn't do.  When we were using ePD2005, I wrote a program that did the following:


  • User selects all symbols for a part
  • User clicks a button to create the HETERO attribute/property
  • User clicks another  button to "clean up" each symbol by:
    • open up each symbol in DxDesigner
    • Add the HETERO attribute
    • Change colors of lines, boxes and pin stubs
    • Save the symbol.
    • Open the next symbol.


How do I do this using the New Symbol Editor in EE7.9.2?
