    IS there a pline tool or any way to draw a line in Virtuoso layout
    I need to attach 2 rectangles../ and i dont want to use another
    rectangle as this will overlap with them.

    is there any other way to do this.??

    I don't understand what you're trying to do. Can't you use a single polygon
    to get the shape you want? A line will only be for show in the layout, not a
    physical part of your design. If you want to make a shape that can be
    simulated, exported to other formats, etc. then the overlapping rectangles
    should be OK if they are on the same layer. You can also draw the rectangles
    overlapped and then use "merge shapes" to convert them into a single
    polygon. If you really want a line, you can probably make a path with width

    The function you are looking for is dbCreatLine, it only accepts a
    list of points. Below is a quick skill routine so it will ask for
    mouse input points.


    ;; TIMcreateLine()
    ;; Add lines (on LSW current Layer)

    let((cv layer points)

    cv = geGetWindowCellView()

    layer = leGetEntryLayer()

    points = enterLine(?prompts
    list("Enter first point."
    "Enter next point.")
    dbCreateLine(cv layer points)

    ) ; End let
    ) ; End procedure

  4. You can try to merge them... I don't remember where was exactly this command
    located, but probably Edit ->...
