How to use the basic Library ?

I have tried to make an arc by converting a path into a PCell chosen from Basic Library.
I got what shown in the following picture. But I wanted to have a real arc, not a square with a text saying it is an arc.


  • Wondering whether this is just the hierarchy display
    being set to "top level only", while a PCell's detail
    may be one level down?

    Display > Full Hierarchy ?

  • Thanks dick,
    Display Full Hierarchy solved the problem.

  • Very good :)

    Another potential pitfall it not to assign a valid layer. The basic library shapes need a target layer which by default is empty. Hence nothing will be generated.
