To run this script

Select Script → Layout → Find_Where_GDSII_Cell_is_Used from the Menus.

Or, in versions that support the script, you can run the utility directly from this page using this button.

Description

This script can be used when changing a GDSII cell name to verify the change won't break the places it is used.

This script will prompt for the name of a GDSII cell and then look through cell libraries and find all the cells that use the named cell. This script can also look through all the schematics and generate a list of locations where the cell has been used when the Search schematic elements as well as cell libraries option is selected.
