Yup, just go to Drawing Options and click on the box to the left of
where it says Out of Date Shapes.  It will bring up a list, scroll down
and find the ones that are out of date and click the coordinates to
bring you to the exact location (it will tell you the layer it is on).
You may need to turn on the "Boundary" for that etch layer to see it due
to the shape priority (sometimes there are multiple shapes but only one
is visible.

Go into the "Drawing Options" and make sure they are all green.
Sometimes you have out of date shapes that prevent it from being up to
date.

Hey guys,

 

Allegro 610 Expert, Windows XP Pro.

 

Well, my design has become "possessed"!

 

No matter what I do, the Status shows DRC errors as "Out Of Date" with 0
errors:

 

- I ran Tools -> Database Check (both checked), passed squeaky clean.

 

- I ran Tools -> Update DRC, resulting in "No DRC errors detected".

 

- I ran "Update DRC" from Drawing Options window, Status tab, also
resulting in "No DRC errors detected".

 

- I got out of Allegro, got back in, then I repeated the above.

 

Anyone ever see this one?  In all my years using this tool, I've never
seen the DRC errors stay "Out Of Date" after updating.

 

Thanks for any help!

 

Gary
