[PCB_FORUM] Re: possessed design!

I am registered on both forums, but much prefer this one.

I have cross posted some issues to both forums, and don't recall ever receiving 
any replies from the cdnuser forum.

Gary, I think you missed Mike's point...it will send you an email. You
only have to go to the site if you choose to reply. You'll still get to
see all the discussions and get to learn whatever you can from them with
just an email check.

Michael,

 

From Jean's post:

 

*      I signed up for the CDNusers, but I never remember to go there to
see what's up. This appears in my email, is informative and responsive,
and thus all I really use.

 

I agree 100%.  The most disruption I can afford is to check my e-mail
occasionally (save, check e-mail, get back to work!).

 

 

From your post:

 

*       The only major difference between the two forums is CDNUsers.org
Forums does not allow you to post/reply directly to the forum via email
so you have to login to the website to post a reply to a post.

 

Which is why this forum is all I'll use, unless the above about
CDNUsers.org Forum changes.

 

Regards,

Gary

Hey Jean,

 

I personally use both forums.  You can setup CDNUsers.org account to
send emails of the posts by checking the box next to "Email me when
someone posts to this forum".

The only major difference between the two forums is CDNUsers.org Forums
does not allow you to post/reply directly to the forum via email so you
have to login to the website to post a reply to a post.

 

See attached image to see what you need to do so you get the posts on
the forum to your email.

Just curious...

I noticed that the number of emails on this forum has 
been picking up lately.

Are folks subscribed to both Allegro forums?
icu-pcb-forum@xxxxxxxxxxxxx and cdnusers.org

or 

Do folks prefer one forum over the other?

Looking for general comments. Personal Interest.

Dave

    Hit the nail on the head! This worked great.....I did have multiple
shapes and could only see the problem shape with boundary on. 

    This forum is always the first place to go when there's a problem.
Great help! 

 

    Mike

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where it says Out of Date Shapes.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and find the ones that are out of date and click the coordinates to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
