Hi,
I hacked and customized the PDF-generating TCL-script (generates the PDF with 1 click, does not output / annotate empty properties and filters out everything I don't want).
However: the product I am designing uses 3 PCBs, each of which exists in 5 variants. I have 3 capture projects (can this be made into some hierarchy / mother-project without screwing up the netlist creation?).

What would really make my day is a PDF-generating script that can output all variants as separate PDFs in 1 go.
The script in its current form is not aware of variants. Variant view-mode is ignored.

Anyone managed to do this? Ideas?

Regards,
Lasse

EDIT:
I did not verify the behaviour properly. The script actually uses the selected variant but the little window with the "Launch"-button needs to be closed before changing variants it seems.
I´ll post when I have a working solution that iterates all the variants. Sorry about posting prematurely.

Hello,
Could you share this TCL, please.
I`m very interesting TCL scripts for Cadence...
Does anyone can share useful link with TCL-files for Cadence/OrCAD, please?

For example,
Replace path in design cash.
TCL provided with OrCAD not work, and hangs OrCAD.
Sometimes work - but delete symbols from page.... Really crazy thing.
