Whilst in the process of gathering parts to build a dual 30 V 0–3A power supply published by a Czech Republic Student in 2016, I noticed the original Copper Artwork provided by the student had several copper Pour areas included in the layout, so I added the Copper Pour Areas successfully, but the option to "Pour Copper" is missing from the Right–Click Context Menu when I select the Copper Pour Area, as well as that, the part of the Hatch/Fill Dialog giving the various patterns from a drop–down menu is also coming up totally blank!

Have I got something wrongly set, an installation fault or is there something missing from my Windows installation itself?

I am using Easy–PC Version 24.0.5, on Windows 10 Professional 22H2.

Not sure why your "Pour Copper" option doesn't work. I suspect that you have created a copper outline shape and not just a copper pour area?

I believe that you have to pre-define the hatched styles before the drop down menu works, - nothing pre-defined- nothing to show in drop down menu!

No, it definitely is a Copper Pour Area – the "Tool Tip" that appears when I hover the mouse over it identifies the areas as such !

Hi,
Is it possible that the copper pour area is in error somewhere, such that the polygon crosses over itself somewhere, or a side/line of the polygon backs onto itself ?

Regards,
Shadders.
