In the attcahed picture I have some void areas in the gnd plane that I can not get rid of. I have tried turning all colors on to see if there was somthing hiding there, but nothing shows up. Screen redraws and closing / re-opening board file have no effect.
What are these mysterious areas and how do I get rid of them?
Answering my own question. Found put that these shapes are "voids" and going to Shape - Manaul Void/Cavity - Delete allows me to select and delete each one.
This was an area where we changed the connector type. I suppose these voids were left overs from something. I surely didn't put them in...........
Hopefully this is the last problem for the day............

In reply to oldmouldy:
Once again OM, you are right on target. I didn't think of that. The previous part had 2mm lead spacing and there were islands between the pins that I deleted. This must have been left over artifacts from that island removal.
I have to say though, you'd think the software would take care of them. For that matter, you'd think it wouldn't leave islands in the first place.
Have a great weekend!
You can also try this:
close all layers
open only "boundary" for that layer
then delete the shape
then update your plane
then those voids would be gone for sure,
