help need in pads

no way.

Added after 1 minutes:

Or you can select those 2D-line first and then change the layer property. Have a try pls.

Re: help need in pads

Putting a 2D line on a signal layer is dangerous, in Pads it will not be recognized as an electrical element, so if you cross existing circuitry the verify design utility will not flag it as a short, but when you create gerbers it will be etched along with the traces and you will have a short - 2D lines in decals don't do this, they are converted to silkscreen.

An option to convert 2D line into trace properties in pads 2007

1. Put your 2D line on a layer other than your circuit trace layer.

2. Open ECO tools.
Select ADD CONNECTION, dig one end of line then the other end.

3. Highlight the connection press F2 to route the trace.

Now you have your trace, the 2D line can be deleted.

I was looking for this feature of PADS few years ago and I'm afraid it has not been added up to now. I started from PADS2005.2 up to PADS9.2 and the object properties i.e. imported objects from a DXF file don't have the option to be converted into a trace/route.
