I think someone stated awhile back that
there are issues like this if your keepout
has arcs in it, I think what you define as
a board outline on another mech layer
can have arcs but the actual keepout
which really defines your keepin or
actual usable board area cannot have arcs??
I really think Protel should have a true
board outline and provide keepouts
only for keepouts.
Again not sure but I think someone stated that
I have not tested it as I have had no need
for arcs in the keepout yet.
