How Can I change the distance between Polygon pours and routs in Altium PCB designer?

enter image description here

Update 1: Actually I'm newbie on Altium so posted the PCB with default clearance value (0.245 mm) and larger value (0.345 mm) respectively. I think it conflicts with routs through U1 and U2, which routs are so close to pads.

Update2: I was changing the clearance between track and polygon so it didn't work. I changed clearance between polygon and other parameters and it's working.

Along the top: Design > Rules

A window will open, along the left: Electrical > Clearance > Polygons

Change the Minimum Clearance to whatever you would like it to be.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks, I tried it but the distance is same as before. When the Minimum Clearance is changed to lower value nothing happens and when it's changed to a larger value the polygon color changes to green. \$\endgroup\$ – Mehran Mar 19 '18 at 0:56

    \$\begingroup\$ Not sure about Altium, but you probably have to rerun DRC or update polygons or something like that. \$\endgroup\$ – Tyler Mar 19 '18 at 1:01

  • \$\begingroup\$ What @ThePhoton said (which I assumed you would have known/tried after nothing changed). All good but. \$\endgroup\$ – DSWG Mar 19 '18 at 2:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @STWilliams, I've changed the rules and deleted the polygon and placed it again, but it doesn't work, don't know what's going wrong. I added pictures. \$\endgroup\$ – Mehran Mar 19 '18 at 3:37
