I need to define a couple of large and irregularly shaped traces, so I decided to use polygons and ratsnest to accomplish my trace shapes. This worked great, however, when I added my ground pour polygon, which encompasses my power related polygons, running the ratsnest command connects (merges, unions) all the polygons togeter into one single pour. Obviously this is a problem.
Modyfying the GND polygon to circumvent the power-related polygons would be a pain. Is there a better way to accomplish this?
I've included images before and after applying the ratsnest command. The before image shows the power-related polygons on the right-had side of the board.
Before ratsnest. There are some power related polygons on the right, encompassed by my outermost GND polygon.
After ratsnest. You can see that the ratsnest command merges/unions all the polygons even though they are all assigned different names.
