teardrop color

#1 Post by uditag » 03 Aug 2022, 08:52

Hi,

I am trying to use teardrop in my PCB layout. However there seems to be an issue with the color of the trace around the teardrop location in the bottom layer.

I have also attached the .pcb file for reference.

Can anyone suggest how to make these teardrops visible in the bottom layer, it seems to be an issue with the color settings, but i cant pinpoint on the item to change in the color menu for this.

the teardrop becomes visible when we hover with a mouse over the said trace, but as soon as we remove the mouse it becomes invisible again. I am using black background (white background has no effect, i tried that)

You have selected white for the bottom copper and for some unknown reason the teardrops aren't visible. This looks like a bug to me. If you change the bottom copper color to something like green, it will show up. Even changing to a custom color of a slightly-gray white will fix the problem. In other words, RGB color settings of 255/255/255 will yield invisible teardrops, but subtracting 1 from any one of those numbers will make them visible again.
