Using KiCad, is there a way to have a pad with an slot shape (referred to in KiCad as "oval") be exported properly as a drill (.drl) file? The pad in KiCad looks like Fig. 1 below.
But after exporting the PCB layout to the gerber and drill files, it seems to only process a single round hole, rather than the entire slot/oval, as shown in Fig. 2 (as seen from a separate gerber-viewing program).
I was previously able to work around this problem by modifying the footprint to have multiple smaller circular drills instead of a larger slot/oval one and got it successfully fabricated. Are there more efficient alternatives?
