I am currently trying to create a solder paste stencil using PADS 9. I draw the copper outlines on the Paste Mask Top layer and reduce the line width to 1. After this to fill in the selected area I decrease the hatch grid to 0.5 (half of my line width). The only problem is that this does not save, and every time i view the part i have to repeat this process. Is there any solution to this or way to create a permanent fill that will enable me to create my desired solder paste stencil?
