    idf Import into PADS

    happybrunson

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to import an emn file into PADS. I can get board outlines to come through, but not placement keepouts. PADS deletes the keepouts for some reason. Below is  a simple .emn file contents and the report back from PADS. Notice the Warning about place keepout deletion. Any tips??
