I'm getting a stop mask error. Its on layer 29, tstop. It's for a Omron
button and it has labels 1,2,3,4 and I'm wondering if maybe part of
those label bled in? I'm not sure what to do. Do I just ignore the
error? I highlighted the problem area. Here is just the layer 29 [stop
mask errors.JPG]


Here is the part with all the layers.

first, check to see that you don't also have document or tdocu layers
turned on.

Some eagle parts have way too much drawn in the tplace layer. tplace
should have exactly what you want on the "silk screen" (aka legend)
layer. I like tdocu for info to help me understand part outline and
orientation.

It's easy enough to make a copy of the part and move the offending stuff
to the proper layer (tdocu for me). Create the library you want and have
it open. Then go to the control panel, expand the libraries section,
expand the library that has the bad part, right click on the part and
select copy to library. Then go back the lib editor, open the part,
figure out which package it uses and edit that. Select change/layer -
tdocu and click on the parts that you want on that layer. save the lib,
go to the schematic, library/use the new library and then replace the
offending parts.

Strange, when I go into the package, to edit it, the problem area is not
there.

You can see in the areas that were a problem, they are not a problem
here. :/
