How to display polygon entities (not meshed) in postprocessing plots ?

I have seen somewhere before, probably in viewing preferences, but cannot remember now. Anybody remembers how to show the outline of a polygon entity, that has not been meshed, in a postprocessing plot ? For example, an IC component in a fem part that has not been part of a PCB mesh in a deflection or modal plot ? Thanks.

Bulent,

 

You do this using the "layer visible in view" command. Type "layer visible in view" into the command finder to find it. It is always in the menu but the robbon icons may be inactive by default.

 

Once you launch the command, pick "Reset to Global" on the Layer Visible in View dialog and hit OK on that dialog and the following one.

 

Now all of your polygon geometry, meshes, LBC's, etc will be visible along with the post display.

 

Use the checkboxes on the Simulation Navigator or the Show and Hide command to control the visibility of individual "non-post processing" objects.

 

Use the checkboxes and group visibility under the Post View on the Post Processing Navigator to control the visibility of the post display meshes.

 

To get back to a post only display, pick Layer Visible in View again. Pick OK on the first dialog. On the second, select ALL in the Filter list. this should highlight all of the entries in the Layers list. Then pick Invisible at the bottom, then OK.
