Copper to Drill setup does not seem to work

Hi,

 

I have a job (Split/Mixed planes) with 8 mil holes in 18 mil via pads and 6 mill copper clearence to the vias. So that means the drill to copper is 11 mils.

 

In the past I have seen board shops ask for 12. Worse yet the 8 mill drill gets oversized so I don't really have the 11 mils.

 

So I plugged 14 mils into the Drill to Copper setting and re-poured the plains.

 

NOTHING HAPPENED.

 

So I moved up the Drill to Copper to 24 mills, still nothing.

 

It seeesm the SM Plane Pour ignores the drill to copper. Did I get that right?

 

Anyone familiar with this? What does Drill to Copper do?

 

Thanks,
Bob K.
