how to convert PADS 2009 library (.pd7) to PADS2005 (.pd4) ?? is it possible ?? is it Mentor Graphics
allow such thing ??
if anybody knows please reply for this thread
To take a V9 library back to V4 you need to place the parts on a board in Layout then export that board to ASCII at File > Export. Choose V2005 for the version and save the file. Then open that file in Layout V2005, select all the components, right click, Save to Library.
you can place the components in a board and export the ASCII to 2005 version and import the ASCII file in 2005 version and save it to library
or you can export the .d file in 2009 and using some scripts you can change the syntax to 2005 version and import it in the library manager
Concerning .pd7 to .pd4 library conversion; you say "Using some scripts" to change the syntax.
Can you elaborate please?
what i mean is you can check the syntax of exported .d files in both 2007 and 2004 versions and using some scripts you can change the syntax(.d files are ASCII files only)
eventhough i did not work on scripts much , i am just thinking that this can be helpfull
with out opening PADS 2005 file is it possible to change Library 2009 into PADS library 2005.
please post the script file !!!!!!!!!
