The nsWare ShapeUtils app provides extra tools for creating and editing shapes in OrCAD® PCB editor. It contains 3 main utilities that increase user efficiency.
- “Force update all shapes” will force an update of all shapes. A user can experience that the shapes are reported as being up-to-date while this is not the case. This function will make sure that all shapes are updated.
- “Delete all voids” will either delete all voids (manual and autovoids) or just autovoids. This can save a substantial amount of design time. Instead of having to delete autovoids for each shape, it can be done for all shapes in one process.
- “Disable all shapes” disables all shapes and shows them as being disabled immediately.
