Hi , i created my polygon shaped pad using different pads with different pad numbers and connect them to same net . However, it shows me that as an error ? What can i do to get rid of errors.

Hello,

Can you give me more detailed information? I would be more clear if you can tell what exactly the error is or send me your pad designs.

I see that there is no way to turn a polygon into a pad. I have added tStop and tRestrict layers and that has solved most of the problems. However, when I export the Gerber files (using RS247X) all of my 'custom pad' shapes appear on the top layer, even though they are clearly set to the bottom layer.

You can open design rules -> Options and disable "check same pattern pads".

You can use Altium Designer's standard pad which will give you set to a number of different shapes, including round, rectangular, rounded rectangular and octagonal, sized differently in the X and Y directions, extending the range of shapes that can be created etc. Check it.
