Creating Holes
« on: August 07, 2017, 03:32:23 am »
I'm creating a PCB shape in a pcb library.

I need to create the mounting holes for the PCB.  How do I create a hole?  Is this just a pad with a small x/y size?

Thank you, that's come up ok, but...

I don't know if creating a PCB in pcblib was the correct way to do this (my PCB is the outline of a the hammond 1553BBK pcb).

If I place it as a component, I end up selecting it all the time once it is populated with parts.  I also can't use its outline to define the board shape unless I unlock the primitives.

Is it possible to create user PCB Templates (the ones offered when creating a new project) ?

Thanks,
Frank
