I'm trying to put a plane shield using polygon pour and I realized that some object is not connected to my polygon.

In the picture below it is clearly seen that the GND through hole is not connected to my polygon that is declared as "GND"

I can't understand the reason because I ckecked all possible causes and I wasn't able to find anything.

Can anyone give me a hint?

I don't know what to say. I did a program restart and everything is fine.

    \$\begingroup\$ A typical cause of this is if there is another polygon overlapping this one. Even if the other polygon is shelved, it can prevent this polygon from connecting correctly. Make sure this polygon comes before any overlapping polygons (even shelved ones) in the pour order. \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Jun 29 '17 at 16:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ThePhoton, I believe this is the first reason. I removed all the previous shelved ones but the problem wasn't resolved until I performed program restart. \$\endgroup\$ – MrBit Jun 29 '17 at 16:50

    \$\begingroup\$ @MrBit, did you "Repour All" after removing the shelved polygons or fixing the pour order? \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Jun 29 '17 at 16:51
