    How to get layer name for a particular net Reply

    Hello,

    Is there some technique, allowing to determine layer name of a particular net.

    When checking Net on the Design Object Find Filter, than pressing F4, and than clicking on the net in the layout window, opens a wwindow, that contains plenty of net propertise, but there is NO layer name.

    Regards.

    Pavel.

    Have a look at Tools - Reports, there are some default reports like Etch Length by Layer report or Etch Length by layer and width report or you can create your own. For layer info using Show Element make sure just clines is selected and you get layer info.

    Thanks Steve.

    Nice property. Only shortcoming - it outputs all the nets and if the number of nets counts in thousandes (my case), it will take certain time to localize the net in the long list.

    Regards.

    Pavel.
