Just posted to another forum,  but thought I'd ask here as well.  I need a method to batch edit my library to replace an old style cell with a new updated cell.  We recently translated a Board Station library, developed over more than 15 years, so there have been many naming convention and technique changes over the years.  We'd like to do some cleanup but I don't see any easy way to do a search and replace in the pdb.    I was drawn to this forum because I can't find the functionality in the tool and so thought it would be so easy to do this task in ascii format.  Have you already developed something to do this sort of batch edit on the library?
