I use the KISS method.
here are the Diptrace files I have for a developement board that I designed.
Has lots of options as well as a user option of selecting which pins to detect status of port using LEDs.

creating patterns etc.

Have a simple 2 pad NO pushbutton pattern as well as componet for schematic BUT I keep getting errors that pads are not connected to componets. I connect the pins in schematic but when I convert to PCB the button pins are not connected.
Got to be something very simple or I am missing something??
