    Overlap dynamic shape Reply

    hi all,

            I have a problem with overlap dynamic shape which was due to multiple copper pour on top side of my board. Due to this problem, whenever I try to generate top layer artwork, it will prompts me to delete off the shapes. The quantity of the overlap dynamic shape was too many until I was frustrated. Currently the only way is I have to screen through my whole board to manually pick up those small shapes and then deleted it off. Is there any way to generate the overlap dynamic shape report which lists out all those overlapped shapes?

    Display - Status then click on the colored checkbox next to Out of date shapes, this produces a report that gives x,y co-ordinates. I would also recommend turning on the bound section (make it a bright color) for the specific layer in question (Display - Color Visibility - Stackup folder). You can click on the co-ordinate in the report and the screen will centre on the shape (you might need to zoom in).

    duplicate shapesHi Steve,

              I don't think you get what I mean. Inside my board, there was no out of date shape. Due to multiple times of copper pour of dynamic shape type and also the breakout shapes from large shape were sticked to the board by the via. Duplicate shapes happen at the same location. I cannot figure out any way to get the xy coordinate of those shapes. duplicate dynamic shapedynamic duplicate shapes
