    9.4.1 Update


      I recently updated to PADS Flow 9.4.1.  I used the settings migration tool.  Everytime I start DxDesigner I now have to go into the selection filter and select 'All', it defaults to nothing being selected.  Also, no matter how many times I open a project there are never any projects listed under the recent projects list.

      Do I need to do anything for DxDesigner to remember my choices so I don't have to constanly change the selection filter?

          Do you have a local WDIR folder that is writeable for you? These settings are stored there, both are in the DxDesigner.xml file. If you have a writeable folder try renaming the DxDesigner.xml and DxDesigner will create a new one.

            Is there a way to determine which DxDesigner.xml file is being used?


            Also, in the previous version when more than 1 sheet was open they would appear as tabs at the bottom of the window, in 9.4.1 I longer have the tab view.  Is there a setting that will enable the tab view?

              enable view-schematic tabs in dxdesigner

                You can check the path via Control Panel for your environment varaiables, via iCDB Server Monitor under 'Settings' or via Dashboard. The variable is WDIR and the left-most entry should be a writeable directory that you have access to, for example WDIR=C:\MyWDIR;X:\CorpWDIR\C:\ C:'install path'\SDD_HOME\standard.


                To show schematic tabs use View - Schematic Tabs as indicated in the other posting.

                  Thanks for the help everyone.  I was able to enable Tab viewing.  To fix the other problems I had to change the WDIR from 'c:\PADS Projects;C:\MentorGraphics\9.3PADS\SDD_HOME\standard' to 'c:\PADS Projects;C:\MentorGraphics\9.4PADS\SDD_HOME\standard'.
