psd14.2

Hello,
maybe you should try to use an another output format. This helped me when i had a problem with the output files.

- options->post processing settings
- double click in the row "Device"
- change the output format and maybe you get the correct files

i hope i helps.

greetings,

viewmate

Hello,
sorry, but i dont know how to convert layers between these formats. but if your problem is that you have inverted layers, you can invert they again an get the normal view.
I have used viewmate from pentalogic (a free gerber viewer and editor).

hope it helps,

Re: PSD14.2 gerber

In manufacture > artwork,select the plot mode as positive.
In general parameters select Gerber 6x00
recreate the artwork.
