Re: Make a rectangular pad with a plated through slot.

Thanks for the reply. That's simple. Ive tried that before and I did not get a plated through slot back on the board. When I look at it in 3d mode it does look like its plated but when I look at the board where I did that before it appears plated in the 3d mode but isn't plated when it comes from th...

Make a rectangular pad with a plated through slot.

I need to make a approx. 0.2 x0.180 pad with a plated through .130 x .025 slot in the middle. Is it possible to do that.

Re: 2.1.0.5 and 2.1.9 on same machine

Thanks , that seemed to worked. I notice in the beta the W - switch layer key doesn't switch layers and in one mode, edit trace i believe, brings up a window with line widths.

2.1.0.5 and 2.1.9 on same machine

I have a need for slotted pads on 1 project which I see the new 2.1.9 beta supports. I currently have 2.1.0.5 on the machine and read someplace that if you use 2.1.9 you can't go back and use 2.1.0.5. Can I install both on the same XP machine?

Thanks

Re: Mounting hole and fiducial

sorry I was trying to ask 2 questions in one post. First question . When I use the mounting hole it allows me to define the hole diameter and the OD of the "clear area". When I do a copper pour i have a clear area and the hole. What I want is to do is on the top I want a clear area so the mounting s...
