any problam in orcad capture and layout please clarify this (ie what is your actual error)
Capture:
1) Create a folder
2) open capture file new project
Name---you think
Location---you select
3) Then auto open this folder you draw your hard ware.
4)Take parts(ie diode,resister etc) from Place parts tool.this you clear you tellme.

Re: orcad layout

thanks for ur reply. but no doubt in capture window. i draw a schematic of pic microcontroller, with ps, uart & keypad. in layout i routed this schematic in bottom layer. for using jumpers i go to top layer. in that trace one round lik pad occurs. in this pad only all layers displayed but i already turned off all layers except top & bottom.
i read one article in that they said press <backspace> for all layers off. then press <home> for turn on. then press particular layer number & press <- sign> for turn off the that layer. i tried this method but it works without correct round shape. i need correct round shape. plz clarify it

Re: orcad layout

As far as size of pad is concerned you should do the following setps to change the size of the pad
1- goto tool->padstack->select from spreadsheet
2- a chart will be open,goto to the top of the chart,here you find "VIA1" is written
3- change the parameters of it as you like for example if only top and bottom layers are required then select them and give the desired size,then you can disable rest of the layers.
This way you can change the size of your via.
you can make upto 16 different via's by changing the parameters.
Hope this would help you.
