Nick,
        hopefully you get this message before you have had 20 other
responses. This morning the PEDA server seems to have a long lag time.

        When drawing the polygon outline you can change the drawing mode by
pressing "SHIFT - SPACEBAR", this will toggle through the various drawing
modes like orthogonal, 45 degree, any angle, etc.. Note these same modes
exist while routing through the same "SHIFT - SPACEBAR", although there are
some slight differences in the available modes or their effective
operations.
        As for arcs in a polygon, I have not had very good luck with that.
It is also one of the mode available but just doesn't seem to operate well.
You may have better luck by using an ordinary drawn arc and setting it as a
keepout on that layer which will control the polygon outline when it is
poured.

Sincerely,
Brad Velander.

Subject: [PEDA] Polygon at non 45degree angles


I'm trying to place a polygon pour and I need it to follow some angles that
are at 30 degrees as well as around some arcs. Can anyone please tell me how
to do this?
