Which software version are you on? Any chance you could share your decal? I've tried creating a decal with associated copper shapes top and bottom and didn't have the issue you described.
Ok. I just tried this again on a 10 layer template instead of the 2 layer, the only way that I can get the associated copper to show up in the design is to edit the decal in the design and move the copper shape from layer 2 to layer 10 and re-associate the copper.
I'm using the latest and greatest VX.2.2
My board is 4 Layer.

Are you placing the copper on "Opposite" layer?
This will ensure the copper appears on the "Bottom" layer regardless the layer count in your design.
Unfortunately there is not an option to place it on "Inner Layers".
Maybe this should be added to Mentor Ideas???
Genius! Thank you very much.
I never noticed the <opposite side> option because doesn't show on the list unless you scroll up.
Same thing with the <All Layers> option hidden at the top of the list.
I wonder why they do that.
