Tips

  1. To use a specific material as a layer in the layer stack, click the ellipsis control () for that layer in the Materials cell in the Layer Stack Manager. This will open the Select Material dialog, which restricts the Altium Material Library dialog to show only materials that are suitable for the layer on which the ellipsis control was clicked.
  2. If the Library Compliance checkbox is enabled in the Layer Stack Manager mode of the Properties panel for each layer that has been selected from the Material Library, the current layer properties are checked against the values of that material definition in the library. Any property that is not compliant is marked with an error flag. Re-select the material () to update the values.
