Non Orthogonal Cell Array

This macro creats a cell array with a non orthogonal spacing. In normal use of the LayoutEditor such an array can be created by editing the properties of an existing array. These kinds of arrays are supported in GDSII, however unsupported in other file format like OpenAccess
