    DFF Error and Rendering Error on PCB Decal

    Adam.Bierman

      Hi All,

       

      I have an IC in my design that is throwing me a single DFF error among its 32 pin;

       

      "DFF Error: Layer Compare Error on Silkscreen Top"

       

      When I measure the space between pin and silkscreen I get 10 mil, which is over my 8mil requirement.  However the silkscreen only shows up as a thin line, when I look at it in the decal editor though it goes to 8 mil, which pushes it under the threshold.  Does anyone know why it renders and measures differently in Layout view as opposed to decal view and how I can fix this?  I have a similar problem with a diode decal.  I've attached a cpuple images below:

      Thanks for any help!
