    Hello all,

    I am new to KLayout so I would like some insight. I have a (3'') wafer design where each die has an identifier (e.g. AL2-10) at a "Documentation Layer". I need to export the whole "Documentation Layer" as text in order to be able to load it to an external python script and use the identifiers further.
    How can I do it using (eg) a python macro?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm afraid I don't understand your request. You mean labels? I guess you speak of DXF, right?

    There are many ways KLayout translates DXF to GDS. There is no general rule how to translate the data. KLayout is a tool to deal with physical mask data, not drawings. It does not have the concepts of documentation layers. In some cases the labels are even translated to polygons, so you cannot extract them to text.

    To deal with DXF, other tools are probably a better choice.
