I've laid down some "mounting hole pads" for external wires to be connected to the pcb, but how do I attach tracks to the pads? each time I run the design rule tool is shows them as all errors. I tried just using normal pads but it wont let me change the pad and hole sizes.

Is this normal?

Mounting hole pads are just that, mounting holes.

If you need a specific pad size, you should be able to place a pad and then right click to the properties menu and change the size and hole size.

Thanks for the good idea, i was trying to lay a pad and then do a copper pour around it :(

I always manage to think of the hard way to do things...

Cheers!
