Create Circular Ring

What is the workflow for creating a custom pad (using 6.0.7)? I used to do something similar to below, but I don’t see the merge command anymore. Thanks!

In v6 you enter pad editing mode, add copper graphic items which overlap the anchor pad directly or indirectly, then leave the editing mode. You don’t need to select the custom copper graphic items, they just need to overlap the pad. So, create the anchor pad first. You can add the overlapping graphic items before or after entering the editing mode. When you leave the edit mode, it just checks which copper items overlap the anchor pad and adds them to the custom shape.
