I am creating a pad that has two drill appetures, as defined by the compoennt datasheet. I am creating a Pad shape which cosists of outline, and two inner drill shapes.

I am greeted with:
"Pad style has more than one hole shape defined (layer <Drill Shape>)

Any ideas on how to get around this?

Thanks in advance,

I currently have a similar Pad I want to define.
One Pad, two drill holes.
Has there been a solution in the meantime?

Hi George

Currently only one drill hole however you could put a mounting hole in alongside it. You can put the pad and mounting hole on the same net in the symbol, so they will always be on the same net.

I hope this helps.

Sounds similar to one I created before for some magnetic device.
In my case I used an oval pad with a drill offset in one foci of the oval, and a mounting hole, round, with drill hole at the other foci of the oval. As Lewis, says, make the mounting pad and the normal pad part of the same net.

(Yes, I realise ovals aren't elipses and don't have foci, but it seemed the best way to describe what I meant!)
