can not edit bottom layer traces

#1 Post by diptrace_nj » 17 Apr 2015, 12:53

Hello. I deleted my last post as I figured it all out! I'm having a new problem though. In PCB Layout, I can not edit traces on the bottom layer. I can't click or highlight them?? How do I edit bottom layer traces?

Thanks - Doug

Switch to bottom layer first. If a trace is under or above a component, enable "Edit Traces" mode in order to be able to select the trace.

If your traces are routed on bottom layer, switch the "Current Signal/Plane Layer" edit field from "Top (1)" to "Bottom (2)". The traces will highlight with the cursor & you will notify it.
