Hi,
        I could be wrong, but it sounds like the actual elusive traces are on
another layer that is *not* visible.  When you go to route or select a net,
traces on some of the non-visible layers will temporarily appear....  to
fix, turn on those layers and delete as appropriate......

do not be fooled by the graphical color change of a selected net/trace on
these non-visible layers... sometimes (if the layer color is just right),
when selected, the color appears different and it could be mistaken for a
different layer's color instead of the layer of interest....

Cheers,
-chris

Subject: [PEDA] elusive traces


hello,

i've gone thru and hand-routed a 10-layer board from my protel
schematic and bad artwork of the original layers.  as suggested,
i set the design rules for un-routed traces and it pointed out a
few to me.

here's what i ran into:  i went to correct one of the unrun traces.
it appeared missing.  but when i selected interactive routing and
clicked on a pad, some other junk traces popped up on that
layer.  it looked like maybe it had been good but that it had been
accidentally dragged.  it even illegally crossed other traces on the
layer.  so i go up and select edit/delete and the darn thing dis-
appears before i can delete it!  i finally kept it from disappearing
by turning all the layers back on, and then i deleted it.

could somebody explain what was going on there?

thank you, miker
