Avoid encounter from inserting buffer in a net by breaking the connection.

    I need to add antenna cells at all the input ports.

    I am using the script given by Cadence to add this. But the
    connectivity between the input pin and the Antenna cell is broken and
    a buffer is placed in the middle when i run CTS & during timing
    optimization which basically equivalent to not adding the Antenna cell
    at all.

    The input port will see the buffer alone instead of seeing the Antenna
    cell & the buffer.

    Is there any way to lock the connection between the input port & the
    Antenna cell. We cant lock the net because that net has to connect to
    the inner logic also.
    Can we lock only a portion of the net. ie from the input port till the
    Antenna cell.


    Is there any way to instruct encounter not to insert buffer in the
    specified nets.
