Island of copper pours within a lake of copper pour

I have a GND layer w/ a ground copper pour across the entire board’s back side. Mounted on the back is an LDO w/ a couple of 3.3V pads and a decoupling capacitor placed up against it. I’d like to have a nice 3.3V copper pour island in my lake of GND, but the PCB rules checker isn’t happy about it. I was hoping that the PCB Editor would wrap my 3.3V copper pour with a nice clearance band like it does for non-GND pads and vias, but no such luck. Is there a way to go about specifying my 3.3V copper pour island?

Welcome to the forum!
Did you set your 3.3V’s zone priority higher than that of the GND zone? Only then is it ‘carved out’ and DRC happy.


Whoot, whoot! That did it. Many thanks!
