I am working with net ties in altium to link different ground signals. My net ties seem to work, no drc error, and I can link traces between them and objects of the same net.

If I try to pour a polygon over them however, nothing happens. I even created a component class to have direct connect for my net ties. My polygons are set to pour over all same net objects and it works well for anything else... the only problem is my net tie and I dont know wht is causing this behaviour?

Here you see the net tie, joined to a copper region on its left side (works) but the gnd plane polygon cannot pour over its right pad!

Thank you for your help!

Yes, it does seem to do that. A bug I guess.

If you place a stub trace at the pad with the common net name to the polygon it will pour over the stub.

Right click on the polygon pour

Change the polygon pour to pour over same net objects

enter image description here

This will only work if the net tie and the polygon pour have the same net name, so make sure the polygon pour has the same name as the net tie (in connected to net

If its not that then it's probably some weird rule in your DRC (Design Rule Checker ) rules
