Eagle: Inverted Text?
 
Has anyone got an idea how I can make inverted text in Eagle? For example "Ground" etched into a groundplane. I tried changing the text to the keepout and some other layers, but that didn't seem to help. Using a polygon or a rectangle made no difference.

I've searched the net, but I coulnd't really find anything.

i dont think this is possible as text is considered as a standalone element and thus affected by groundplanes like any other element

The width of the lines that form the ground plane have to be finer than the size of the text. Write the text on the tRestrict or bRestrict layer. The ground layer has to allow orphans so that isolated circles inside certain letters such as "O, R, D, B..." don't disappear.

If you don't want to mess with the properties of the ground plane, you can draw another polygon just where you want the text, and set it to the same Rank as the ground plane, so that they overlap each other.
