I'm almost finished with my very first board layout using Allegro PCB editor 16.6 (latest hotfix June 2014), and I'm trying to generate the artwork so I can check over it and make sure it's good to send out to manufacturing. I'm having a problem when I try to create the artwork. It tells me that "Dynamic shapres are out of date; please update them. Check for out of date shapes in Setup Drawing Options dialog."
I look for the out of date shapes, and it tells me I have 1 dynamic shape that needs updating. I read that I could find out which was the offending shape by going to Display -> Status, and then clicking on the coloured button where it says "Out of date shapes." This then brings up another window. (see attached image)
As you can see from the image, the co-ordinates of the shape are way outside the limits of my drawing, and when I click on them, it tells me it cannot find the shape because it is outside the extents of the window. It is the only dynamic shape I have in my design now, as I have deleted the other 2 dynamic shapes ( GND and PWR planes).
How can I resolve this problem, and successfully generate the artwork I need?
Try a Tools - Database Check, check all the options and click on Check, once finished you can click on Viewlog to see if anything changed, then check the status report again...

That fixed the problem, thanks!
