I have a problem with the PCB in the attached file. Can someone please opne it and tell
me whether some pads in the polygon also appear shorted when they should not.
I can not really help you -- when I open that file with PCB version
20110918 for routing style signal line width is 0.0025 mm, so I guess
you are using some latest git version of pcb, and my release shipped
with gentoo can not really handle that file format. And pressing 'O' key
shows DRC errors, so I guess you have connected pads which should not be
connected following net list.
Do you care only about visual appearance?
Indeed there seems to be a thin connection from pad to surrounding
copper polygon. The funny part is: If I delete the trace, and press 'U'
key to undo delete operation, then all is OK. And seems to stay OK.
Unfortunately my PCB version has much more serious problems:
After some operations, GTK GUI behaviour becomes very sluggish.
I noted that multiple times when I imported my rubber band traces and
thought that it was only a problem of that import. But it occured now
with your file also. It may be related with my current PCB release, or
maybe with the fact that I am using Gnome 3, which uses GL drawing, and
PCB uses GL also.
