Yes, if you want to optimise this kind of thing you end up making your
own pads anyway. Btw I strongly suggest you start designing (and
naming!) everything metric. There are industry suggestions on what to
name the pads, you will end up in a mess pretty quickly if you don't
follow it. It's IPC-7351B, naming convention for land patterns.


There are more useful documents close by. Mentor Graphics also has a
bunch of useful documents on how to create electronic design libraries
so they can be used efficiently. You needed to provide an email address
to get them. (mailinator.com has a useful antispam service.)
