    How do I add an obstruct to a custom RF shape?


      I have run across a operation issue that I need assistance on. I create custom RF shapes all the time but usually are the simple type with conductive-shapes and nodes. Now I have a need for a more complex shape which will need additional vias and obstructs. The documentation below states that vias and obstructs are acceptable:


      Standard RF shapes

      • Plane and conductive shapes
      • Obstructs (Trace, Trace & Via, Via, Plane, and Placement/Pad)
      • User-placed vias
      • Fixed shapes
      • Stitch contour property

      The "Creating a Custom RF Shape" instructions below also mention adding these features:

             10. If required, add other elements to the RF shape from the list of allowed elements. For example other RF shapes and obstructs.


      So, here is my question: How do I add a via and/or obstruct? The documentation does not elaborate on how to do this!


      Your detailed instructions on the missing steps to achieve this is appreciated.
