All my QFN footprints are made with the Altium internal "Tools -> IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard". I get nice footprints with vias in the thermal pad.
When I try to place one of those footprints to the PCB, I get an short circuit violation between the via and the pad
but it shows the error as mentioned below
It is recommended in datasheet that exposed pad should not be connected to GND
let me know if allowing the short circuit in design rules is ok or is there any other way to solve it.
