Summary

The Test Queries Result dialog displays the number of objects affected by the selected rule, taking into account any defined rule specializations. This allows you to see if any objects match the query and check if those objects affected by the filters and rules are the desired result of your search terms.

Access

The dialog is accessed from the PCB Editor by clicking the Test Queries button in the PCB Rules and Constraints Editor dialog (Design » Rules).
