Hello,

Is there a way in the Pattern Editor to place SMD pads on the TOP as well as on the BOTTOM layer?

This would be really useful if one wants to do e.g. a PCI connector or - as in my case - place a micromatch to the edge of a pcb...

A workaround would be for me to design two parts and placing them manually, but that's really dirty.

There are two ways to place SMD pads on bottom side.
1. Open the drop down box with "Top" text and change it to "Bottom". If you add new SMD pads now they will be added to bottom side.
2. Right click on top SMD pad and select "Change Side" from submenu.

Oops. I was looking at pad properties and didn't find it there...

Sometimes it's really that easy :-)
Right click -> change side
or
the mentioned dropdown box in the "Objects" toolbar

works fine now, thanks!
