Add to net, missing net, not there

Hi All,

This is a note to myself and anyone else that may be searching for this.
If you're net is missing from the "add to net" list, it may be because the net is locked

To fix unlock net DOH! :oops:

Re: Where oh where did my pattern go?

This worked for me, I had an snapEDA imported CR2032 holder that I need to hang out over the edge of the PCB so need to cut down pad under the battery to fit within the board outline

Thanks Tom

Re: led display layout pattern

Map VA.png Hi Tomg, Thank you for your help. For completeness This worked very well and save me a lot of time and sanity :D The only gripe I have is there was no way of generating a net list ect but I understand why.

DRC error issue

We have been updating a PCB design, when opening the layout lots of clearance errors have come up that was not there before, the DRC is finding faults eg gap=0.25 rule=0.3 but when I look at the DRC settings they are set at 0.13. Reloading the DRC settings does not clear the errors
