    Shorting 2 shapes on negativ layer with different netnames by a via Reply

    We are trying to shorten 2 shapes on negativ layers with different netnames (Analog and digital GND)by a via with the net_short property. It looks like this property is only valid for clines, because one of the shapes always get voided. Has anybody a good solution for this problem?

    The NET_SHORT property only works on positive planes.

    One workaround is to use lines/shape on a new user defined subclass that would be incorporated in the artwork to tie the planes together.

    Hope this helps!

    Inorder to short two different netnames using via. Try the following procedures.
    1. add via
    2. choose edit,property of the via.
    3. From the Edit property, select netshort. Enter net_short value ""net1:net2"" without the "". then apply

    thus you may able to short two different net even in the negative planes.

    Cheers!
