    Design verification


      Hi to the group, I'm a new user to PADS (9.1) migrating from Eagle, I've recently finished a 6 layer design and have started the design verification - Tools>Verify Design...


      If I select 'Clearance' in PADS 9.1 the verification only runs on the visable part of the design, is this intentional?

      If I select say 'Connectivity' the verification runs on the entire design and not just the visable part?


      I would expect consistancy in how the rules are applied, am I missing something here?




      (enjoying the experience)

          Hi Kevin


          Yes - the clearance check only runs for the visible part of the design.This is actually very useful.

          If you have lots of errors on the whole board, you can zoom into a specific area just to investigate this part of of the design.


          You're right - connectivity runs for the whole design.

          Yes - you can say that this is inconsistent, but it has been like this for years, and it is no problem in daily use.
