Sorry for the reply, I need to show more self control in this matter.

You are 100% correct it is a rookie mistake!

I have already read one person that checked their design. Because of the
willingness of an old dog to admit this ROOKIE mistake! So if that person
saved some money and time I can eat the ego trip!

In the Future Dennis, please restrain from categorizing the persons level of
experience in your replies. These type of statements may cause someone to be
reluctant to post their mistakes.

I was only trying to help other people take notice to my problem. The board
was fine it is a person that didn't consult us before they hand sanded all
board to bring them into spec. The board house increased the size to
accommodate the plane. I am working with a FAB that I was not at all
familiar with and hence the problem snow balled on me.

I didn't get a chance to read all the biggest mistakes posted lately but I
am confident your never made one!

Thanks for qualifying my experience level for me, where are you located so I
can turn my carpet your direction!

this is a rookie mistake, BUT the board shop should have advised you
and/or just cut the plane back from the edges
this S.O.P.

don't forget that the plane is a negative, wherever there is nothing
there is copper, you draw non-copper
so the clearance rule doesn't really apply unless you would have them
auotroute some primitives relative to the keep out, which of course
would probably make a mess
