Selecting all elements of a cell and moving it will have the effect of moving the cell origin, but it will change as well the location where this cell is referred. With this feature, you can move the origin without changing the resulting design. All references to this adjust will be adjusted correspondingly.
The referred cell of all selected references is changed to a new cell. So the effect will be identical to changing the referred cell with the Properties tool for any select cell reference.
A new cell containing a copy of the current cell is added to the library. The new cell is named with the old cell name with the extension _copy. If a copy already exists, a number is added to the cell name.
All hierarchy is removed from the current design. So by calling this feature, the current cell is flattened and all other cells are removed. So the design will contain afterward a single cell with shapes and no more cell references.
A design file may contain more than one top-level design. With this feature, all cells not needed for the current cell are deleted. So after calling this feature, the current visible cell will be the only top-level cell in the design.
Any cell not at least containing a single shape is removed. Also, all references to this cell are deleted. This feature will not influence the resulting design.
Two cells of the current design are compared. Any differences between the two cells are marked. There are two methods to mark the differences:
