Is it possible to connect a pad on a SMD to a copper pour using a thermal relief? I have tried clicking on multiple pads using the thermal tool and had no luck. I also changed the flag for the pad in the pcb file, and I was unsuccessful. Thanks.
No, SMD pads do not support thermals.
Is there any way to connect pads to a pour? When I have no pour, there is a rats nest for all of these pins, but when I draw the ground plane all of the pads had a "o" on top of them and the lines on the screen disappear. The log still says I have the same number of rat lines remaining. I am using the 20080202 version of PCB. Thanks for your help.
The 'o' is the rats marker; it means that that pad needs to be connected to the polygon it's over. Just use a line to connect it.
