I am using PCB123 to do a PCB layout and I have a part with some oddly shaped pads specified in the part's recommended footprint. It seems that in the footprint editor, there are only 3 options for pin shapes. Therefore, I chose the closest one (square pad) and then extended them to match the recommended footprint using filled polygons in the metal layer.
The footprint in question belongs to the Luminus Devices XNOVA 3020 led, datasheet here
My problem is that I get DRC errors indicating that the polygons are too close to the pins. I cannot find a way to tell the footprint editor that the polygons share the same net as the pins. Normally on the general layout, I can specify to which net the polygon belongs, however in footprint editor, this menu is grayed-out.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
