How to pour a polygon inside a ground plane

Hi! Need some help, I have a ground plane that fills most of the bottom layer, I now want to add a another plane for VOUT inside the ground polygon. The problem is that when i draw the VOUT polygon on the bottom layer it doesn't seem to create any clearing between the VOUT and GND polygon. What's the correct procedure to do this?

 

Attaching the result from my attempt.

 

Thanks,

Marcus

Hi CaptainMJ,
That is a great question, thanks for posting here.  Go to the properties of the large polygon and set the rank to 6.  Then set the rank of the polygon inside the larger polygon to 1.  Rank 1 polygons will subtract from other polygons.
