I was working in PADS 9.4.1 layout on updating an old design, and suddenly noticed that ALL of the board's many manually placed (i.e. they are not part of a decal) 'Plane Area Cutouts' are suddenly just GONE. I know I didn't delete each one somehow, nor did I put a window over the whole board of course and delete ALL the cutouts on ALL the layers for the whole board, but they are ALL gone.
Any ideas what happened that caused that? I was thinking they are just invisible and didn't have the correct layer or toggle turned on in the view setup, but my view setup exactly matches the board from yesterday where I can still see all the cutouts, but on the board I worked on today, they are all gone.
Wow, immediately answered my own question. I clicked on the Plane Area Cut Out button to see if that did anything and it reset some setting and they all turned back on (I clicked too fast and don't remember the message, but it changed the mode I think).
