I have reported a suggestion to assume pads with the same number in footprint as being connected:
There I was told that a problem of being not connected of pads in my key can be solved
“using rectangular pads with a suitable offset to keep each pad origin inside an other pad.
this is the reason on offsets in smd pads.”
I thought it will work till I decided today to modify my footprint to not have to connect its pads at PCB and failed. Using offsets I have moved a center of all connected pads (except the one assumed to be basic) to be inside the basic pad or inside the pad having its center in basic pad.
But when I put it at PCB (this time I prepared special test project) I got:
All connection lines are going to graphic centers of pads (like previously) instead of defined centers and pads are not considered being connected. I include zip with that project. There are also my KEY10.kicad_mod.
Before I will question that what I was told there is not true I’d like to ask here: What I am doing wrong?
I am working in 5.1.4 stable Windows.
