    I like the idea of this but I just can't get it to work. What do I have to set up in the Layer Types/Layers in the PCB shape to get this to work?

    My assumption was that I should create a new Layer Type called "Component Outline" In the PCB symbol. I should also create two new Layers called "Top Component Outline"/"Bottom Component Outline" and in these layers I would then create the outline that would be used by the DRC.

    And can the Component Outline be viewed as a layer in the *.pcb file?
