Net's clearance around pad

as you can see in the attached picture, the net’s clearance seems to generate a copper free area between the pad and a larger copper area which will be need for high current load. How can I get a uninterrupted copper field?


You setup your copper zone to use thermals. Change the copper zone to use solid pad connection to get what you want. (Done in the copper zone properties dialog. Reachable via the right click context menu or shortcut e. At least in kicad 5 modern toolset and kicad 4 opengl canvas. I do not know how to reach it in legacy canvas.)

thanks, it works.
it was a good idea to move to KiCad 5.
