Mechanical engineer, new to board design. Selected DipTrace as my first package for small board design.

Going through the tutorial, creating a polygon shape on the Signal layer in the Pattern Editor per page 102 of the tutorial.

It indicates that to convert the shape to a pad, right click on it after creation and select "Convert to pad" from the sub menu.

Right clicking on the shape does nothing, it's like right clicking anywhere on the pattern editor. I can select the shape by encircling it with the selection tool and the points of the polygon are highlighted, but there are no actions that I seem to be able to perform that will bring up a menu.

Can someone suggest what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

You need to right click on polygon outline. Right click inside of polygon does not work.
