Foundation 4.2i - "LM error - 97: A data buffer is too small"


Keywords: F4.2i, sch, create, macro, data buffer, small, symbol

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to create macros, the following error is reported:

"Lmacs: A data buffer is too small
Lmacs: A data buffer is too small - <path_and_symbol_name>.SYM
Sc : LM error - 97"

(This error occurs regardless of the available system resources.)


To work around this problem, edit the symbol first:

- Add the pins to the symbol.
- Edit and add the pins in the schematic.
- Save the symbol and the schematic.
