    You might have a padstack of the same name that has the offset and that is being found first by the tools. Check your padpath settings and make sure your library folder is at the top of the list. You could also try a Place - Update Symbols and click on update symbol padstacks and ignore fixed property, check the package symbol and click on refresh.

     ok, I deleted all files (padstack, shapes, package) with relationship to my package. and I made it completely again, and now it's working. probably there were some link to old file.. or so..

     

    thanks for your help
