Standard Vias

These variables apply to standard vias (see 5.8).

ViaKeepSubMasters
Value: boolean.
When a standard via is instantiated, a sub-master cell is created in memory which represents the instantiation for its given parameter set. By default, sub-master cells exist only in memory, and are created as needed by Xic.

When this variable is set, sub-masters that have been created will be included when writing output. This will also be true when the StripForExport variable is set. This applies when writing all output, except when using the Save and Save As buttons in the File Menu, and the equivalent text accelerators and including the prompts when exiting the program. It is also ignored when using the Save script function.

This variable tracks the state of the Include standard via cell sub-masters check box in the Export Control panel.

ViaListSubMasters
Value: boolean.
When a standard via is instantiated, a sub-master cell is created in memory which represents the instantiation for its given parameter set. By default, sub-master cells exist only in memory, and are created as needed by Xic.

When this variable is set, sub-masters that have been created will be included in the list of modified cells contained in the Modified Cells pop-up, which is obtained from the Save button in the File Menu. The sub-masters can be saved as native cell files in the current directory.
