Mount pad overlapping

Post by VTiederle » 08 Sep 2016, 03:25

The new feature in editing mount pads is very helpful, e.g. if the material of the mount pad is to be changed.
But if the mount pad are on different sides of the board Sherlock puts them all on one side. This leads to overlapping of mount pads and Sherlock will run without any warning.
Is it possible to show a warning as soon as mount pads are overlapping?

Thank you for the feedback. The issue of editing mount pads from various sides of the PCB being placed on the same side following the edit is fixed in version 5.0.2 which is expected to be released by mid-September. I will investigate placing a warning message when objects overlap each other.
