Re: Removing an old board outline

I am currently working on a board design that started out one size of Board Outline, then got changed to a second a different size. On the design screen I see the second - and, correct - board outline. However, when I go into 'Create PDF' I see both the old and new Board Outlines. Just in case this was an image artifact I went into CAM and created some artwork. The 'old' board outline also appears there.


Can someone point me in the direction I need to go to remove all remnants of the 'old' Board Outline ?

It is not possible for PADS to have 2 Board outlines, but what can happen, is import of a new outline is flipped over to 2D polyline (usually with a message.)

If you want to use a newly created/imported  2D closed polyline as a Board outline, you need to first select shape on the old board outline, delete, then select shape on the 2D polyline and change it to a Board Outline. This new outline is then used for clearance checking, zoom etc.
