I work a simple single sided board in PADS. I have my components placed
on board and all rules are set. Some of the tracks are routed ok. But a
little rectangle (rhomb in fact) appers at the corners of some routed
nets!!!
Could anyone tell me what is that and how to remove that? I've verified
my design and there is no clearance errors or any other error....

sorry for my bed english Smile

It's sounds like a "tack," which is an indication of where a segment begins or
ends as far as PADS database is concerned. These days they're pretty
meaningless and can be ignored; apparently historically the problem was that
selection commands and routing commands could only start at tacks (and while
PADS still lacks many features -- even what most people these days consider
quite basic ones, especially given the 5 digit price tag -- it certainly will
let you select and re-route traces from anywhere you like).

You can turn off their display from Tools->Options->Routing->Options->Show
Tacks.

Joel is right, you are probably just seeing the tacks. The one place where I
have ever seen them cause any issues was when interactive routing with the
push and shove routines. Segments that were tacked would commonly not push
or shove properly. That said, the interactive routing would put the tacks
there in the first place, not something that I had purposely done, so it was
a bit frustrating.
