Routeing and Copper Pour Timing

Hi Everyone,

I have a fairly compact 4 layer board with my components restricted to the top layer.

I am at the routing stage but struggling with the timing of auto-routeing and copper pour.

Having defined the copper pour areas for top and bottom layers, when I  do Tools - Auto Route Nets - Browse Net Classes and select Power and Signal only, the routeing completes and I am assume that the copper pour will handle the incompleted Ground net.

Sure enough when I pour, I see spokes to earth from the relavant pads on both layers but I am still left with incompleted ground air wires on the top layer.   Can these can be removed manually or am I going about this in the wrong way please?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

If the routes have completed, then usings "Optimise Nets" shortcut CTRL+D will rescan the PCB and remove airwires if the path is complete.
