I'm trying to create a footprint pad stack that has different pad shapes on different layers.
Most other PCB tools can do this.
Can this feature be added to DipTrace?

+1 on this, I have a through hole component, and I need a larger pad on the solder side and a smaller one on the component side.

I just tried to create a device with square pads on top, round on bottom and a hole in the center. It imported ok to the pattern editor but the bottom pads got their own set of numbers, when I used that pattern on the PCB editor all the pads ended up being the same as the top pad...

Pad stacks would be a good add to DT but when you look at a program that supports pad stacks it get complicated $$.
