    bulk disapprove of ERC errors?

      Eagle 5.11

       

      Working on a new version of an old board. Got about 200 "errors" that were

      reviewed and approved. Now I want to go back and review everything from

      scratch. What is the best way to do this?

       

      If I pull up the DRC errors, I can see the approved ones and disapprove them

      individually. Is there a way to do this in bulk?

          Interesting question ... I don't know of a direct way.

           

          Workaround: GROUP all, and then move the complete design by some amount.

          (Maybe you move it back later.) Since the approval marks are related to

          the object coordinates, the next DRC will detect all errors again.

              I investigated Tilmann's suggestion and found it only works if you don't

              return the design to the original position. Even saving the moved design and

              reopening the board, the approved errors are still within the design file so

              if you then position the board back to its original position, the approved

              list reappears.Still qualifies as a work around though

                  You need to run DRC after the first move - I think that will remove all

                  approvals of the old positions.

                  After that, you can move back and then run DRC again.

                      Doesn't seem to. I thought that it would work that way as well. The approved

                      list is somewhat protected and unless you specifically unapprove items they

                      remain in the design file.

                      the approved error has reappeared

                          So every time you want to freshly re-check the design, you need to move

                          it to a position where it has never been before...

                           

                          Sorry to say this, but that's crap.

                              I found a way to do that.  Just rename your .BRD file to .XML then use a standard XML editor, and delete all <approve /> tags between the <errors> and </errors> tag and your approved errors are no longer approved! 

                               

                              Hope this helps!

                                  The original question related to V5. Your method only works for V6 onward.

                                    With it and from the board editor you can unapprove,in bulk, all the DRC

                                    errors you have previously approved. It makes those same changes to the

                                    board XML while the board is displayed.

                                     

                                    If the attached file does not make it to Element14, get it from

                                    EagleCentral.

                            Hi Oppie,

                            in case you still work with version 5 then get the latest 5.12.0

                            It has some features and can handle the U-parameter.

                            (read /doc / Update_eng.txt / Miscellaneous)

                            This allows you to change the position and the name of the eaglerc.usr

                            file,so you can run different versions of eagle.

                              Working on a new version of an old board. Got about 200 "errors" that

                              were reviewed and approved. Now I want to go back and review everything

                              from scratch. What is the best way to do this?

                               

                              If I pull up the DRC errors, I can see the approved ones and disapprove

                              them individually. Is there a way to do this in bulk?

                              Hi,

                               

                              just use the repeat function of the hotkey.

                              Select the first "Approved Error" in the Errors list and keep

                              Alt + A pressed until all errors are gone. It takes some time

                              but saves mouse clicks.
