I would want to create a symbol in Cadence with Part developper but I can't access to the symbol editor.
I use the Part developper Tutorial (chapter 9).
Does nyone could help me ?

You can create a symbol by yourself. The symbol can be in any shape as long as it contains the same pins as the extracted view does -- both pin names and directions ( input, output, ...).
You can also simulation the extracted view directly. The stimuli can be added with a spice stimulus file (ascii file). Add the stimulus file in the (...)

I have a simple question about the creation of new parts (symbol and footprint) in OrCAD. Say I create a symbol with 14 pins numbered 1..14. Further suppose I create a footprint DIP14 also pins 1..14. If I assign the DIP14 footprint to my symbol, does OrCAD map pin1 of my symbol to pin1 (...)

create empty symbol. Then put there label (choice instance label):
Save this symbol.
Then put this symbol into layout. Use magnification factor more than 100. Otherwise it will be very small and you may not see that.

You should use calibreview while doing extraction.

Then you will run the simulation in another file, where you will add your circuits symbol, the necessary sources and the balun.
