Help with fill zone

I apologize if this completely simple and I dont understand basics but I have been scratching my head and cant think of anything.
Recently migrated from Eagle
I have been trying to create a ground plane but somehow it wont fill.
Start a fill zone,
Select the NET- GND
It doesnt do anything, the DRC doesnt have any related issues.
Its on the same copper plane

Being a new user it wouldnt let me add any additional links

It looks like you do not have a board shape defined (on the Edge Cuts layer). Zones will not fill if there is no board shape.

I think I do, am i missing something on that

OK, I just couldn’t see in your other screenshot.

The other options:

  • you could have no pads on the net you selected for the zone
  • you could have disabled display of filled areas (the toolbar on the left of the screen, which is cropped out of your screenshots)

Read five more posts and you will have self-promoted yourself to “Basic”, afterwhich you may post as you wish.

This link to a FAQ explains much of the forum workings.

Welcome! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for the quick help, appreciate it.
Display of filled zones was not selected, that fixed it
