OrCAD can't display via properly

Piotr , 06-28-2022, 07:18 AM
in my design I can't display via with hole.
Picture on left side is with correct via, picture on right side is without hole in via.
I can only create vias without holes.

Many thanks for help

Could you attach a screenshot from padstack editor? is the hole defined there correctly?

This is what I have in my padstack Editor.

and in drill tab?

Please see attached tabs.
All the mounting holes looks as this via.
I'm using also 17.4 version.

Hmm, this looks ok. Do you see other holes in your PCB? eg. the holes in through hole pads?

I can see all other holes same as vias:

Maybe there are some global properties, which cause this view.

Oh, I think I know what this could be. Try Setup -> Design Parameters -> Display and see Enhanced display modes. Play with the checkboxes
