This dialog allows you to edit the layer name (and net name for an internal plane layer).


In the PCB editor, double-click on a layer tab at the bottom of the workspace.


  • Name - create or edit the layer's name in this field.
  • Net name - choose a net from drop-down list to assign to the internal plane. This option is available only if an internal plane layer was double-clicked to access the dialog.
