    I sometimes find myself doing repetitive tasks with the schematic
    composer which could be easily be repeated using some sort of macro
    functionality similar to what is provided in MS Office tools/Emacs etc.
    (I can imagine this being extremely useful in layout also). Is there
    any such functionality available in the Cadence tools? This would be in
    lieur of writing a SKILL program every time I need to do a task - using
    a macro if I could record my keystrokes/menu commands /whatever else, I
    would be able to repeat the macro thereby saving time...

    If someone knows of some trick/SKILL pgm which does it, that would be

    Yes it would be nice. Mentor has a define userware window which was a
    text window that you could copy and paste from the command log file and
    then compile it to a function. It also pointed out syntax errors.

    A copy and paste (instead of yank and paste) would be extremely useful
    also for adding common figures such as vias and poly contacts.
