Creating Silk Screen solid areas in PCB Decals

Hi,

 

When drawing Silk Screen 2D lines in a PCB Decal I typically draw then on Layer 1. That gets lines into the Silk for a component but how about solid areas?

 

Is the only way to draw COPPER for Silk Screen to draw the copper in the SIlk Screen Layer? That implies the decals wont work if used in a PADs environment that has the Silk Screen in another layer, right?

 

Did the reccommended method for drawing Silk Screen lines in Layer 1 change over the last 20+ years or so?

 

Perhaps Silk Screen 2D lines should now be drawin in the Silk Screen layer? Again, how about the changing PADs layer setup?

 

Thanks,

Bob K.
