Summary

The paste mask expansion distance for pads can be determined either by relevant Paste Mask Expansion design rules, or manually, by defining an expansion value as part of the pad's properties. The latter requires that the pad's Paste Mask Override property be enabled. This function returns pad objects whose Paste Mask Override property complies with the Query.

Syntax

PasteMaskOverride : Boolean_String

Boolean_String must be either 'True' or 'False'.

Example Usage

PasteMaskOverride = 'True'
Returns all pad objects whose Paste Mask Override property is enabled.

PasteMaskOverride = 'False'
Returns all pad objects whose Paste Mask Override property is disabled.

PasteMaskOverride <> 'True'
Not (PasteMaskOverride = 'True')
Returns all objects except pad objects whose Paste Mask Override property is enabled.

PasteMaskOverride <> 'False'
Not (PasteMaskOverride = 'False')
Returns all objects except pad objects whose Paste Mask Override property is disabled.

Tips

  1. The Paste Mask Override property is only defined for pad objects.
