I have one QFN footprint with power pad consisting of:
- square pad at F.Cu,
- square pad at B.Cu,
- some through hole pads as vias at power pad.
I copied the other QFN footprint from KiCad library and wanted to change its power pad to be similar.
Opening first footprint I selected one of through hole pads, right clicked and selected “Copy Pad Properties to Default”.
Then I opened new footprint, clicked from right side tools: “Add a pad” and I got Pad 25 being added:
A moment ago I was adding at bottom power pad the same as at top and I needed not to edit its dimensions so it was default those time. From that I see that “Copy Pad Properties to Default” have some effect. Through hole pads dimension is 0.6. Pad 25 dimension is 0.9x0.6 so they have something in common
Is it a bug or it is how V6 is expected to work but I just don’t understand something (it is my first day using V6).
