I just thought I'd comment on the basic problem. From my understanding, an import was done from PADS to Protel which moved track from an assembly layer to the silkscreen layer. Good import programs allow explicit cross-program mapping of layers, but that's another issue As long as there is

ABDU, However, there might be a more direct way to accomplish the task. Is there any way to move the assembly lines to a different layer in PADS? I find it hard to believe that the import would automatically take *all* track and put it on the Silkscreen layer? Perhaps it was considered, when

Abd ulRahman, We are almost completed with the translation of the 9,000 part PADS library to Protel DXP. Phillip Restall - [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote a program to change the silkscreen outline to a special line width in the PADS library and then, once the library is in Protel, we are globally
