    Hello,
    I'm having a problem in my post processing feature using ORCAD. When I
    set up the Post Processing settings, I batch enable all the layers I want to
    process. All the layers are processed correctly (i.e. product output files)
    with the exception of the silk screen layer. For some reason, I cannot get
    an output file for this layer. I did comparison checks between the settings
    for this layer and other layers that to work......and everything seems to be
    in order. Is this is bug in the problem? I would appreciate any
    suggestions in getting around this problem. P.S. I tried using the Gerber
    RS-274D format as well as the Gerber Extended formats. Thanks.

    I would guess that you don't have the layers setup properly in the
    silkscreen layer. What happens when you do a preview (right click on
    highlighted layer) of the bad layer in the post process spreadsheet?
    If you don't see anything, then you need to turn on the silkscreen
    layer while in the post process preview mode. Do this with thru the
    color spreadsheet. If the silkscreen layer is missing from the color
    spreadsheet, hit the insert key to pull up a menu of layers. Be sure
    to save your color selection (save colors) in the post process
    spreadsheet (right click).
