Vias are not connecting directly to the copper pour

#1 Post by leoccaixeta » 26 Mar 2021, 16:58

I created a GND layer, added a copper pour and linked to GND nets, also i checked the option ". But when i try to make a via to GND plane, it doesn't connect directly, I have to find a pin and route it inside the copper pour.

Vias should be connected to GND net too. You don't need to route inside of the copper pour but can create ratlines from any GND pad to vias. Or select all unconnected vias using Edit -> Edit Selection, right click on any of selected and choose "Add to Net -> Selected Vias -> GND"
