I'm the first time trying to do a multilayer.
I've set up the middle two layers as GND and VCC.
Both layers are split. I therefore placed tracks
through them.


Use "Design|Split Planes..." and add the splits there. They're defined like polygons.


 Common tracks on all layers were
placed as keepout.
Upon a printout, I found that middle layer don't
have keepouts.

Yes, that's because you don't need them :-)
If you like to pull back the planes at the edges of the print (I allways do), place a track around the board. You are on a negative layer, so the planes will go as far as the universe reaches. I usually copy the Mech1 (Board Outline) to the mid layers and make all tracks (and arcs) 2mm wide if I want a pull-back of 1mm.

Is it therefore true that a keepout track only
works when doing a GND pour ?
