  • Shortcuts and FuncKeys for beginners

    Some novice OrCAD/Allegro/Capture users may find this helpful ...

    The attached PDF OrCAD_Capture_Shortcuts.pdf lists all shortcuts Robert mentions during the course. I added some more helpful shortcuts. This way you can put it on your monitor and take a quick look at it.




    Some shortcuts are defined in the file "c:\Cadence\SPB_17.2\share\local\pcb\site.env" . You can create or edit this file and add the shortcut definitions listed below.

    Code:
