[Solved] Dynamic shape not updating

Posted on Updated on

Question :


I have a problem with dynamic shape on my board.

dynamic shapes on the board not updating even they are not voiding from any where. shape fill type is smooth and I try to update it from Display>Status>update dynamic shapes but error msg occured

“1 dynamic shape is still out of date or empty.  Run Out of date shapes Report from status dialog to identify them.”

I also try to DB doctor my pcb but not working. In the starting shape was fine Error occured suddenly I didnt know how it happens.

previously I have this problem and I resolved it by chance by removing internal plane layers from Xsection and again defined them. but I know this is not a proper solution.

Any Suggestions.




Answer :

 hello komikumi,

unseen shape usually caused by boundary shape that you haven’t deleted before. It appears after you use island_delete command, your shape fill was deleted by allegro because its too small. This sometime happen to me too

have you tried this one

1. click on command color192 (beside toggle_grid command).

2. choose stack up tab

3. activate boundary layer for bottom and top.

4. click apply and the ok

5. just delete your boundary shape and it will be ok.

screenshoot :


have a try, hope its work for you 🙂

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get several emails with the same
    comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
