Click the left button to select one graph (if two graphs overlap, click the left button to select one graph and click the other graph)

Use the left key box to select a piece of graph. A graph must be completely surrounded before it can be selected.

Key click out of the common menu commands (rarely used, two points, trouble. We have shortcuts.

Right-click and drag to enlarge. After magnification, it is often used together with the F key to restore to full display. Panning view with Tab key. There’s ‘Strokes,’ where you tap the right button to draw some lines, and you can actually invoke some commands.

Shift+ left + select graph,

Ctrl+ left to deselect graphics. (uppercase Cadence menu + press shift, Ctrl written ^)

F1 displays the help window.


F3 is a very useful shortcut to control whether to display the corresponding property dialog box after selecting the corresponding tool. For example, after selecting the Path tool, if you want to control the Path direction, you can press F3 to bring up the dialog box for setting.

F4 is used to control whether Partial selection of a graph is possible.

Open the F5.

F8 GuidedPath Create switch to L90XYFirst.

Ctrl + A selection. This is the same as in Windows.

Shift + BReturn. This involves “Hierarchy”. I translate it as “rank”. This command is the level up, level up view.

The B key goes to Level.

Ctrl+C interrupts a command. Not often used. Generally, press the Esc key several times to cancel a command.

Shift+C Chop. First call the command, select the graph to be cut, and then draw a rectangle to cut.

C key copy. Copy a shape.

Ctrl +D deselect. This can also be done by clicking on a blank area with the mouse. This shortcut is the same as the deselect shortcut in Photoshop. Shift+D, and D is also deselected.

Shift+E and E are some of the options that the user presets.

Ctrl+F displays Hierarchy.

Shift+F displays all levels.

The F key fills the workspace display. It just shows all the graphics that you’ve drawn.

Ctrl + G (ZoomTo Grid).

The G shortcut is for Gravity. Gravity, I think, is the same as Snap in AutoCAD, except it can Snap to certain nodes. Sometimes this Gravity is very annoying, because it always randomly adsorbs, then you can click the “G” key to close the Gravity, and then open it when the operation is completed.

The I key inserts the module (Instance).

Shift+K clears all rulers. You always want to clear all the rulers if you want to clear them.

K key ruler tool. Ruler

L key label tool. The Label. Tags are added to the specific text layer.

Shift+M merge tool. The Merge

M key movement tool. A Move. After selecting the Move tool, select the graph to be moved, and then click anywhere on the screen, this is the reference point to determine the Move, and then you can Move freely. This can also be done by selecting a shape with the mouse first and moving the mouse when the mouse arrow changes to a cross direction.

Ctrl+N, Shift+N and N control the direction.

Ctrl+N horizontal and then vertical. L90XFirst

Shift plus N is orthogonal. Orthogonal

N is 45 diagonal plus orthogonal. Diagonal

Shift+O rotation tool. The Rotate

The O key is inserted into the contact hole. The Create Contact

Ctrl+P to insert the pin. The Pin

Shift+P polygon tool. Polygon

The P key inserts a Path, which I translate as “Path.” Someone translated it as “pipe”. Convert to Polygon for all of these.

Shift+Q opens the design properties dialog box. Select a shape first.

Q key graphics object properties. This is practical. Often used to change graphic properties. Also select a graph first.

Ctrl+R is Redraw.

Shift + R is Reshape weight setting. It is to add a piece of graphics on top of the original graphics.

R key rectangle tool. And Rectangle is probably the most used tool for this.

Ctrl + S is Split. I translate as “add inflection point”. The Stretch command is used to Stretch the original straight Path.

Shift+S is Search.

S bond stretching tool. Stretch. The requirement is to select the box to stretch the graph, and then stretch. I think this stretching tool is the essence of Virtuso layout design that distinguishes it from other drawing software. It allows you to stretch freely without losing the original properties of the graphics. This conforms to the requirements of the Layout.

Ctrl + T (Zoomto Set).

Shift plus T(Tree), or I should call this HierarchyTree.

T is Layer Tap, Layer Tap. This menu command is not available. This shortcut is actually quite handy. After pressing T and clicking a graph, it will automatically switch to the layer of the graph just clicked. With this shortcut, you don’t have to click on the LSW window as often.

Shift+U repeat Redo. After revoking the order, go back on it

The U key undoes the Undo.

Ctrl + V (Typein CIW operates)

The V key is associated with Attatch. This command requires some explanation. Associate a child with a parent. If parent is moved, child is also moved; Move child, parent doesn’t move. You can associate a Label to a Pad.

Ctrl+W closes the window. Another way to close a window.

Shift+W next view. Next to the View

W key previous view. Previous View

Ctrl+X for editing. To Edit the Fit. It feels like F.

Shift+X down one level. Descend

Edit in Place. This is very confusing and difficult to translate. In the Hierarchy menu.

Ctrl+Y tells Cycle Select to try and fail.

Shift plus Y Paste. Cooperate with Yank.

Y bond region copy Yank. Copy can only Copy complete graphics objects.

Ctrl+Z view Zoom In by 2 times

Shift+Z view Zoom Out by 2 times

Z key view zooming in.

The ESC key to Cancel.

Tab key panes the view Pan. Press Tab and click a point in the view area with the mouse to move the view to the center of that point.

Delete key deletes.

BackSpace key to undo the previous point. This is useful. I don’t have to delete and redraw the Path because I drew it wrong. You can undo that.

The Enter key determines the last point of a graph. Can also double – click the left mouse button to end.

Ctrl+ arrow to move the Cell.

Shift+ arrow to move the mouse. Half a grid point at a time.

The arrow keys move the view.

In addition to the shortcuts cadence comes with, many are written by cadence itself. As long as you know how to write skill programs, you can define your own shortcuts. It involves modifying the.cdsinit file. The online manual specifically says: do not abuse the shift+1 bindkey
