[PCB_FORUM] Re: Pad designer editor problems

Hi Gary,

Our library has padstacks with spaces and dashes in the names and don't
give us problems.

Just thinking...

1) are you positive you've mod'd this one in the 'correct' library, and
maybe not in a duplicate path that Allegro is NOT looking in?
2) When you say you've mod'd it from an existing, did you do that in the
PADSTACK Editor? or did you simply copy it, and now the editor doesn't
find it. In that case you need to restart the editor
3) can you call that new padstack (filename_mod.pad) up in the allegro
symbol editor?
4) are you sure there's not a flash symbol associated with the new
padstack that the editor doesn't find?

Hope this helps. Good day.

Mitch
