        I've been searching the archives and haven't found an answer to my
question. What is and how do you use the mask feature in the design rules?
ie: Component Clearance Rule. If you choose footprint or component there is
a field for Mask. Thank you.


It helps you to find a component. On the right, when you first pop up that window having chosen, say Component, there is a list of all components. If you type C in the Mask field, the list now shows only components with reference designators beginning with "C." Or "C1" would only show designators beginning with "C1." If you type in the complete reference designator, you can then just select the component you want. Faster than looking down what might be a thousand components....
