    Opposite layer defined in pad stack comes out as inner layer in 4 layer layout design


      Hello All ,


      I have created a mounting hole with inner diameter and outer diameter pad style .


      I have defined values for mounted side , inner side , opposite side and top-bottom SM .


      I have associated manual copper in top-bottom electrical layer and top-bottom SM .


      But when this part is used in 4 layer layout design , the copper which is associated with bottom comes in inner layer i.e 2nd layer for 4 layer board .


      It does not come in bottom layer i.e 4th layer for 4 layer layout design .


      It assumes the opposite side defined in pad stack for that part as the 2nd layer .


      So please guide as if how can I get the opposite side copper in the actual bottom layer i.e 4th layer ?


      Best Regards ,
