Hi:

Once you create a polygon for a ground plane, and after using Ratsnet, the polygon fills. How to get rid of the fill again (other than closing and opening the .brd again)?

Thanks;
Gus

Hi Gus,

Use RIPUP on an edge of the polygon. HELP RIPUP

Hi Gus,

You can type:

RIPUP @;

Followed by enter in the EAGLE command line.This will return all of the
polygons to outline mode.

to add...

I find it very frustrating that the pour area re-fills every time I run ratsnest, and I have to ripup to hide it again.
My solution was to add a keybinding (i used ctrl + D) and have the command run:
RATSNEST; RIPUP @;

This reroutes the airwires, then clears away the pour.

Eagle 7.6.0

One usually puts "set_polygon_ratsnest off" (on) on keys ;-)
