1. When I use Route Keepouts, I get DRC errors when there is a via within this Route Keepout. The actual DRC is "Thru Via to Route Keepout Spacing". Pretty much all of the time, I don't mind that there is a via in the Route Keepout, as long as there is no route connected to it. For instance, if I have a keepout on a layer beneath traces for impedance control and the traces in question happen to via. If I cared about vias in that area, I would add a Via Keepout too. Is there a way to supress this DRC without waiving it for each design? I don't want to use voids in the pours as those are prone to
disappearing if one needs to delete a pour and recreate it for any
2. I use Route Keepouts to keep pours from flooding areas in which I don't want copper and not necessarily always for true route keepout. For instance, while routing Ethernet between the transformer and the RJ45 connector, I use a Route Keepout - All to remove all pours below these routes. However, sometimes, it is necessary to route other traces from the RJ45 or through this keepout area. For this application, I am really using the Route Keepout as a Pour Keepout and not the traditional "keep all routes out". This creates many DRC errors for the routes that need to go through these areas. Is there a way to supress these DRC errors withouth waiving them for each design, or perhaps, better yet, a better way to do this? Again, I don't want to use voids in the pours as those are prone to disappearing if one needs to delete a pour and recreate it for any reason. I wish they had something like a Pour Keepout. That would be nice.
In reply to oldmouldy:
It was just that easy. Very clear directions too. You're my hero. Thank you very much oldmouldy.
