Question

Capture - PACK_SHORT is causing netlist errors with multi-sectioned parts. When generating the netlist errors are reported that are similar to the following: 


ERROR(ORCAP-36064): Pin "VSS" found in PACK_SHORT property on part "U1B" doesnt exist on the symbol.

ERROR(ORCAP-36018): Aborting Netlisting... Please correct the above errors and retry.


How can I correct this?


Solution

This is a known bug and has been reported. To correct the first error, you need to specify a valid pin. 


The workaround is to edit the symbol properties once the section is placed on the schematic. For the sections that do not contain the pins listed in the PACK_SHORT property, you must delete the value of the PACK_SHORT property in that section.
