Hi BrianOriginally posted in cdnusers.org by andrewjw
In 14.2 Allegro was using Static shapes only - the shape required manual voiding to achieve the required DRC clearance. In 15.5 you have the choice of Static and Dynamic shapes - Dynamic shapes are linked into the DRC and will void automatically depending on the parameters of the shape. If the shape is dynamic there is not a option to void individual elements as this is done dynamically - you can however add properties to elements that affect the clearance (DYN_* properties). The shape Parameters define the way the shape behaves (voids to DRC values or Padstack values, clearance oversize, solid or hatched etc.
To edit the shapes in 15.5 (or 15.2 and 15.5.1) use the Shapes menu - Shape->Select Shape or Void, then click on the shape - the shape will then get small "square" boxes at each vertex which can be moved. To add a manual void into the shape use Manual Void->Polygon or Rectangular or Circle.
