With the four buttons available, different categories can be used. Choose from Component, Routing, Shapes and Text. By using the selection mask, you can operate much faster; each mask will automatically deselect the items within that mask making them not pickable.
Each category masks 'groups' of items; Components masks silkscreen shapes, component areas and component pads but not component names. Likewise, Routing means tracks and vias. Shapes means all shape types including copper and areas. Text will mask all text items and includes Values. As well as having the selection masks available on your main toolbar, you can also assign them to shortcut keys making them even more accessible. A new Design Technology category enables you to define rules that are used by Component Areas.
Once an area is drawn, named and given a layer, it can be given a set of rules that control how it behaves. For example, a rule can say whether Components are keep in or keep out. Once the match criteria has been defined, the match name can then include explicit names or wildcard names. Component areas can be created in your design and provide a new representation that can be used for different rules. Not only can they now be used for Component Rules but they can also be used as Component Height and Routing areas.
With the power of Component Rules, the Online DRC option has been enhanced so that during placement of components and during track editing, checking is fully enabled and all rules adhered to.
