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.
