Hi, I am learning Eagle and now cannot resolve some trivial problems. I have made minimalistic PCB with 3 elements on it. Board is intended to be one-side copper (Bottom) and one-side components (Top). Now, when I want to make "Ground Plane" on Bottom layer - make polygon > name it "GND" > click on it again > "Ratsnest" > and ... I have nothing. When I do that on "Top" layer - when I make "Polygon" on "Top" layer, I can easily do it and I can have "Ground Plane" on "Top" layer. But, I need it on "Bottom" layer.... What am I missing here!?!Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/115181?tstart=0#115181.

Hi, maybe there are no ground pads or vias inside the polygon area? The copper area can't be connected to anything and therefore nothing is visible???? Regards,Richard HammerlOriginal article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/115189?tstart=0#115189.

Ok, I have checked things and found out that "naming" of nets was inconsistent... when I have put correct names to nets it do the job... Thank you on your hint.Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/115191?tstart=0#115191.
