When I open a brd file from Expert with Legacy how can I keep the drcs from being so massive when all I need to do is review the board.
I do not want to go thru the trouble each time try to clear thousands of drcs that do not exist in the Expert version.
Even though I have had the Cst.Mgr. extracted and imported into the Legacy version it seems the the constriants still get changed. Is there a fix for this?
The only option you have is to turn them off. The DRC errors are there because the legacy version does not understand the design rules that have been set in the XL level. If you are only checking the board then just turn them off. (Display - Color Visibility - Stackup - Conductor).
Steve, unfortunately I am modifying the boards..also I am gerbering them out.
You need to find out what the DRC's are. If they have been set in the XL level do they need to be set ? Rules that are set are defined by Users not the tool so if you don't need them or aren't worried about them then just waive them. If they need to be set and can't be broken then you'll need to open with the correct level to make and changes.
