After drawing, the property pop-up window will pop up, where you can set the property of the prohibited region.

prohibited option

  • Component: When checked, the currently drawn prohibited region cannot place components in it.
  • Fill region: When checked, the currently drawn prohibited region cannot draw filled regions inside, nor can it be drawn into the prohibited region from outside.
  • Track: When checked, the currently drawn prohibited region cannot draw track inside
  • Copper: After checking, the currently drawn prohibited region cannot draw the copper region in it, and the global copper-laying will cut the copper skin of the prohibited region.
  • Plane Zone: After checking, the plane zone will be coutout the copper.

Rectangular outline

  • Layer: Set the layer of the prohibited region, which can be set on the top layer, bottom layer and multiple layers.

  • Lock: Whether to lock the prohibited region, it will be locked and cannot be moved.

  • Start point X: Displays the start point in the X direction of the prohibited region.

  • Start point Y: Displays the start point in the Y direction of the prohibited region.

  • Width: The width of the prohibited region rectangle.

  • height: The height of the prohibited region rectangle.
