Re: Orcad to DipTrace ?

I'm using Orcad 17.2 The "or" was added at the beginning of the DLL name at some point after version 9, and the 64 is for libraries that are 64 bit.

Newbie that needs help...

I'm trying to lean using the free DipTrace.

I'm at the schematic.
Can't even find a generic Op Amp.

Do I look for it while in the schematic area or in the component editor?

Renaming of EDN to EDF will not help, because EDN file has netlist only and what you need is schematic EDIF

Yes it does but it's also asking me to enter a Configuration file?

Schmatic symbol - ability to move pin locations?

I placed a op-amp symbol on the sheet. Now, can I edit that symbols pin location - I want to move them around and have it saved only to that sheet I'm working on. Or is the only to accomblish this is to go to the library editor and edit the symbol and possibly save it out as a different symbol name?...

Orcad capture v 9.2 to DipTrace

The import wants a edif *.edf BUT my Orcad only provides edif2000 *.edn

It can also make using it's edif.dll a netlist *.net

What am I doing wrong here?
