Alan, One of the original suggestions on Dynamic shapes was not to change static shapes with manual voids to dynamic. so you choose is to revert back to the static shape or deleted the shape and re-create it as dynamic.

The user then used all static shapes and I was asked to change it to dynamic. No problem. The former designer also made some manual voids. I can't see any boundaries for the voids. The reason Iknow he's enter voids is that when I try to make artwork I keep getting a error message "WARNING: Shape at (-2850.000 -2900.000) contains void at (-2650.001 -2518.001) which touches another shape" I've never seen this error B4. The co-ordinate is way offthe board and the error goes away if I delete the gnd shape on the layer in question. Any thoughts???? I'm using V15.5 studio.
