Not able to route to pads (New to KiCAD)

Hi, I’m new KiCAD (and EDA tools in general). I was hoping to make a super simple PCB to mount a power inlet header to a chassis and then use a terminal block to run the power out.

I thought it would be pretty straight forward but I have now spent way to long trying to figure out why I cant route to the pads of the manufacturer supplied footprint file. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if the footprint file is causing this. I have never made my own footprint, should I be looking to remake it? Any help would be super appreciated :slight_smile:

The pads contain edge cuts graphics. Oval pads in kicad are made by selecting an oval “drill” in the pad properties not by adding graphics on the edge cuts layer.
