After I filled my top and bottom PCB zones with GND I noticed that most of the GND connections on components no longer had GND air wires and were directly connected to the GND filled zones (which is what I wanted).
However, I noticed a couple GND connections still had air wire connections to other GND connections and don’t understand why that would happen. They should all be connected to the GND filled zone. I have a local ground and an isolated ground, but the problem is only with the local ground. I looked at my nets thinking maybe there was two local ground nets but there is only one. Any idea why some GND connections weren’t made when I filled the top and bottom zones with GND? (see pictures). Thanks in advance!
Below the GND is connected to the filled zone:

hmm. You can see the GND wires in the bottom right. In the second picture I
showed outlines of the filled areas only in zones. It looks like maybe I moved C13 but the outline didn’t move with it? Will re-pouring my GND layer fix this? Do I have to refill the layer every time I move a component once I filled a layer in or am I missing the problem?
hit “B” to re-pour after you have moved something.
If you have the monitor-space I find it’s useful to look at the 3D view (hit alt-3) also, while I like to keep the PCB-view without the zones showing.
