Oops . . .

I'll try again with a message this time . . . anyway, it's Wenesday, and my
brain only functions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I just thought that it might make a difference in how it is handled based on
where it is encountered, and also if it was a fill verses a pad.

Even if it is done at "gerber" time, it may make a difference in how Protel
defines the "pad" to the gerber file based upon whether it is encountered as
part of the design or part of a component, either of which should be
different than a "fill" which it will most certainly "draw".

Other than that it sounds like it is being drawn with the wrong size
aperature, possibly too large.

Oh well, thats all I can think of on a Wenesday . . .

Thanks,

JaMi
