How to edit a cell imported from a library (shapes and layers)


I have run into a situation where I need to modify a cell (not a PCell) from a given library. This cell has some shapes and layer information, what I would like to do is to do some simple operation (drawing a BOX and inverting the shape in a given layer, or changing the layer of some shapes), then I would insert the modified cell into the top cell (as an instance).

What would be the most elegant way of doing this?

Thanks very much!



  • Hi Xyan,

    You can use "Edit/Selection/Convert to static cell". This will turn a library cell into a normal cell without your layout. After this, you can edit this new cell.
