Please send me a note if you would like a copy of the local library of footprints mentioned above. Unfortunately the tutorials that come with PCB Designer are fairly limited, given the complexity of the software, and it is not easy for newcomers to navigate around the documentation.
The tutorial was originally written for version We use a local library of footprints that includes extra large pads to make assembly easier for inexperienced students. I recommend this strongly. The detailed descriptions of commands are excellent but you need to be reasonably familiar with the tools before this becomes meaningful.
Most people are probably not interested in the extra material but here is the handout for completeness. Suggestions for improving them would of course be welcome too.

Tutorials on OrCAD
Here is my rather long-winded tutorial for students who have tutoroal used these applications before. This solves the common problem of students who create the wrong type of project.
It covers the general principles of designing a PCB, including a lot of useful reference material, as well as the software itself. Right-click on a design file with extension.
We also require guide holes in the pads for the drill, which requires specially modified padstacks. The biggest alteration in the interface is the Place Part dialog box, which has become a pop-out panel.
It is far more comprehensive and authoritative than my tutorials, listed below. This behaviour can be changed with an option in the Miscellaneous tab of the Preferences dialog box. It uses OrCAD
