When creating a ground plane in Eagle, Eagle automatically creates a thermal isolation for the pad.
My first question is, does this isolation limit the current compared to a pad that is "completely" connected to the plane?
My second question is, is there a way to make Eagle not automatically create a thermal via? I know one work-around: I can connect the pad with a thick wire then make that same wire on the ground plane. Unfortunately this is hard to do and can introduce errors.
