Question

When I check my board for compliance to physical rules I receive the following error:

ERROR(ORCAP-36071): Illegal character "White space" found in "PCB Footprint" property for component instance..."

This error message reports for example, "White space" is found in "PCB Footprint" property for component instance P1: SCHEMATIC1, 027325 P1 (1.20, 3.60) . /P1:  SCHEMATIC1, 027325 P1  (1.20, 3.60)


Solution

The part causing the error has a value for the PCB Footprint property that contains a space, which is an illegal character in the value. Edit the property value and remove the space. An example of properties without spaces is provided in the screen image below.
