Hello

I have some layouts, done in OrCAD Layout Plus,
from where I want to reuse certain components.

Unfortunately I loosed libraries of those components.
Is there any posibility to pick these components from
layout and put them in library for reusing.

This detail isn't noted in OrCAD Layout Plus documentation.

Thanks in advance.

Pavel.

There are two possibilities to do that. The first works but is not really correct.

Open the MAX-file. The save as "Library". You will now have a library with multiple instances of the same components, but at least you will have the possibility to delete all extras...

There is an ordinary way to do it, but it has been ages since I used the software...
