New to PADS; have used Orcad Layout, Altium, etc. previously.  Issues with Planes. 

 

What I need is an "un-pour" function to return the planes to the outline so the outline can be manipulated.  Issue right now is after pouring any change to the shape is discarded on the next pour.

 

Related to this - when using mixed/split planes, do you use 2D lines or Plane Area to divide the layer?  From what I can tell you assign nets to split layers then use 2D, but having enough trouble with planes it is hard to tell...

 

The remainder of place and route proceeding well...

 

Thanks in advance.
