Using GDS files created by the LayoutEditor are not fully exposed. Some rectangle are missing. GDS designs created with other tools work fine. What is the problem?

This is caused by the e-beam software that does not support box element in the GDS file. These box elements were introduced more than 30 years ago, but still not supported by all software tools. If this is the case, please activate the option 'box element are saved as polygons' under setup/fileformat/GDS before saving the design to disc. In that case all box elements are converted to polygons before and will be read correctly by your e-beam tool. ![setup.png](/api/img.php?thread=20190412-5093&file=setup.png)
