How can I set number to custom made pads for surface mount in Altium? Here the picture

enter image description here

So it is just shape that I drew on top/bottom solder layer and top/bottom layer. How can I give pin number to those shapes?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Those are just shapes, not pads. You should create a component footprint with pads using Place->Pad. \$\endgroup\$ – Spehro Pefhany Aug 11 '15 at 15:06
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SpehroPefhany Well pads come by default by going throught all layer... How can I change that instead \$\endgroup\$ – MathieuL Aug 11 '15 at 15:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ Are you trying to draw pads directly on the PCB or in PCB Library? \$\endgroup\$ – Spehro Pefhany Aug 11 '15 at 15:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ @SpehroPefhany I am drawing them into the PCB library editor, if there is a way do that, it could be nice to post it. However, I just went and copy/paste a pad from a IPC footprint \$\endgroup\$ – MathieuL Aug 11 '15 at 15:17

Here's how you change a pad to SMT single layer:

This is pretty basic stuff. Altium has excellent documentation- you should work through the tutorials.
