How do I add a solder mask?

The solder mask is automatically generated for Gerber production, but you can add it is a layer.

Launch the Design technology Shift + T and click 'add' and fill out the details as shown in attached.


Mover layers in the stack for the correct order they physically appear in. (Note 'documentation' layer is wrong in attached image it should be right at the top).


In the interaction bar you will see your new layer as shown.

    There is no Type option for paste mask.

     And [None] defaults to Electrical. Unless you created and deleted a layer with a different type, then it defaults to the last used type.
