    how do I turn off short markers Reply

    A new "feature" of xl is dynamically created short markers.  These happen whenever you move a line and xl thinks there might be a tiny chance that a short may be created such as a metal5 going over a metal2 line.

    It's obvious what I think of this new feature.  It would be great if it actually worked but since it doesn't

     How do I turn off the markers?  Note that these are NOT the object markers whose visibility is sometimes controlled by the layer palette or LSW.

    That sounds very odd - you shouldn't get short markers unless there is actually a short. It doesn't put them in for potential shorts. Which version are you using? You didn't say...

    Hi Andrew,

     Yes, very odd.  I'm on release 1.6.5 ISR13.

    I checked the DRD edit settings and everything is off.  Markers show up while I'm editting and then disappear after I've completed the command.

     I was hoping there was an environment setting somewhere that I could get to to disable them.

    tks,

    --lin

    Please contact customer support so we can figure out why this is happening to you - sounds very odd from the symptoms you've described.
