I made this connector footprint which requires solder pads around the perimeter to hold the connector to the board. They are on shapes on the etch layer with solid fill, but they always show as outlines with dots inside. Even when doing the artwork preview.
Will they come out as solid copper pads in the gerbers?
I have to ask, how the heck do you know how to navigate of these option selections?
There are so many settings / options in this program I expect to find a selection one day that says:
Tom - In Setup - User Preferences click on the Info button and you get a list of the settings plus a description to what they do. Whenever you set one it gets written to the %HOME%\pcbenv\env file so you can see what you have set.
