Hi,
What's the best practice for creating patterns that require pads with vias within them? For example, how would I make the ground pad in this footprint?

Thanks

Create the pattern without vias. Add vias over the thermal pad in PCB Layout.

Pattern editor doesn't support vias. You could use through-hole pads instead vias but that would lead to some problems later (DRC errors in PCB Layout).

This is what I suspected, thank you.
