Single layer pads are circular or rectangular copper areas that appear on only one side of the circuit board. Single layer pads are usually used for surface mount components. You can place single layer pads anywhere in your design.

To place a single layer pad:
  1. On the left toolbar select the Pad tool.
  2. On the property bar change any settings as needed.


  3. Move the mouse cursor to the desired location(s) and left click.
  4. Right click if no additional copies of the pad are to be placed.

Single layer pads can also be created using the Circles tool.
