I have copied a polygon pour from one PCB to another, but I cannot seem to hide the outline on the new board. Anyone know how to do this? Comparison below:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes.. The Polygon is exactly the shape I need actually, it's that there's an outline which is making it hard to view the board as a whole from the overlapping lines. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Change the viewing style from "draft" to "hidden". \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Sorry, then I don't get what you're trying to accomplish. What in your images are you calling "the pour" and what are you calling "the outline"? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Fair enough. I edited the image to help clarify what I mean by the outline! Yellow arrow is the outline, the pour is in red. Again I have no issue with the pour itself, I'm just wanting to remove the boarder outline around it. \$\endgroup\$

It looks like you're making a big polygon, and then using a keepout line within the polygon to define the actual shape you want filled.

Instead of doing that, you can use the function "create polygon from free primitives" to make the polygon the actual circular shape you want. (i.e. draw a circle, convert this to a polygon, change the polygon properties as desired) Then the outlines of the polygon will be on the edges of the filled area, and won't distract from viewing the rest of the design.
