Looking to convert some Mentor - .c .p and .d - files to Allegro - Cadence format? I tired the converter, but the following error came up. Thoughts?

This is easy. 

The message indicates the .p (part type) file has attributes that need to be removed. 

You can edit this file in Notepad text editor. 

Remove all "Gates". 

Also, you can send us the files and we'll edit them for you.

Tom,

Perhaps I'm doing it wrong.

If so means that your program does NOT support yet and translate the swapability of the components?

If I have a part with gates information with swapabilty info I want preserve that in the translation,
and make possible include that capability in your program to generate gate and pin swap info in the part. 

This it is a very lack in the program.

Sorry, PCB Libraries, Inc. is a Footprint pattern program and we don't put Swappable Gates in Footprints. 

i.e.: we do not support schematic symbols at this time.

But if you translate from Pads to another cad and the part has swap info it is good to translate that info also.
Your programmer can add this feature in less of a day. maibe 1 hour.
Ask to Him.
Greetings!
