The Export Cell Data button in the Convert Menu brings up the Export Control panel. The top of the panel contains tabbed pages for GDSII, OASIS, CIF, CGX, and Xic cell files. This selects the current output format, and exposes controls and settings particular to the format. The lower part of the panel has two pages. The Setup page allows setting of various format-independent parameters and modes which are used globally when writing layout files. The Write File page provides a button with which export of cell data to a disk file can be initiated, as well as settings which apply during the write operation.
Below are descriptions of the controls in the file format pages selected by the upper tabs. Clicking the tab exposes the page containing controls appropriate for the format. The parameters set with this panel always apply when writing layout files of the types indicated. In particular, the settings apply when the commands in the File Menu are used to save design data, as well as when the Write File button in this panel is used.
