I am running OrCAD PCB Editor and I am only able to view a pad when zoomed in.  



This type of issue is typically due to settings in the Objects Filter. 

To resolve this issue:

  1. Select the Setup > Colors menu. This opens the Color Dialog.
  2. Open the Display tab.
  3. Modify the filter controls.
    The Screen image that follows shows the controls of the Object filter that are included in the Color Dialog.
