TL:DR If I create or import a board outline on PADS Layout, in which layer(s) is it drawn? Can I make it visible/invisible?
On Mentor Graphics PADS, I'm trying to import a board outline from a
.dxf file. I see this can be done in 2 ways: by navigating to
File/Import... or by clicking the
Import DXF in the
In the Import... window, where I can select which layers to use with the imported drawing, I noticed that I can only get the shape to display if I select the
<All layers> entry, no matter what other layers I select. If I use the
Import DXF button, the only option is the
Top layer, which produces the same result.
Now I get the yellow outline displayed on screen, and if i right-click on the working area and choose
Select board outline, I can highlight the shape I've just imported. But:
- What layer is this?
- How can I enable and disable it?
- What if I want to also import other drawings such as fiducials and position references?
