I've included a copper ground plane on a board I'm working on. I'd like to "hide" the copper plane while I'm routing. I thought I could do this by selecting the shape and selecting "defer performing dynamic fill" in the Options panel. When I click "defer performing dynamic fill" the copper plane disappears, as I suspected that it might. However, when I click "Done", the plane comes back. How do I hide just the copper plane without hiding my clines, vias or other features on that etch layer that I want to see?
I'm sure there's gotta be a simple solution to this - I just can't find it.
Deferring dynamic fill turns off the dynamic voiding of elements that are not the same net of the shape, really only for performance reasons.
You could change the Shape Transparency to 0% in the Color Dialog (Display > Color/Visibility... under the Display folder) this will make all the shapes in the design hollow (no fill).
Hope this helps,Mike Catrambone
