How to do layout simplifications in Momentum (version 7)

Question asked by ChiccoF on Nov 28, 2017



I have just started using Momentum version 7 integrated in Virtuoso and I am trying to do a Via simplification and Metal Fill reduction in my structure. I was used to do the same in the previous version, where I managed to do it easily, but now the menu has been slightly changed and I cannot do it anymore. Regarding Via simplification I am interested in the option "Merge vias keeping area and boundaries" but whatever value I put in the related options nothing happens. The same for Metal fill reduction, where I would like to replace it by an equivalent layer. Has anyone managed to use these procedures successfully?

Unfortunately, the documentation that I have found is relative to an older version of Momentum. 

Thank you in advance for your help.
