hi all

i can save lib name and cell name of the cell that i want to remember. and open that cell with geOpen command. it seems it solves my problem but after opening a cell with geOpen command i cannot reach upper levels with ctrl+e . it says i am already at the top level cell.

do you have any idea to help me. how cadence knows which cell is the top level cell and can we edit it.

Can't you simply use Window -> Save / Restore ?

geOpen - opens the cell same way like you open it from library manager.
For navigating through hierarchy see schHiDescendEdit() atc

Hi,

I don't think you can go to a topcell if you open from a bottom cell.
For example, suppose I have a design library with cells called MEM_CTRL, ATL & SHIFT
Now, if none of these cells are below each other hierarchically & they all have some INV_XL cells in their lower hierarchy, which is supposed to be considered the top cell if you want to ascend from INV_XL?

You have to open from the top cell, descend and use functions such as schHiReturn() & schHiReturnToTop() to ascend back to the top cell.

Best regards,
I-FAB
