    Colleagues,

    I’d like to make a board where some of the vias are on SMT pads. I’m aware of the potential assembly problems, which via-in-pad might cause. My circuit will be hand assembled.

    When I try to make via-in-pad, Eagle generates a pop-up message “can’t set via to layer 1”, or draws a big yellow X on the layout.

    Is it possible to suppress this error in Eagle layout?

    Any suggestion, insight or reference is really appreciated!

    Cheers,
    - Nick

    Try creating the via off the side and then move in on the SMT pad.

    On one hand, this workaround produced a desire result. On the other hand, doing this for lots of pads would be a PITA.

    try putting the vias on first and then drag the pads over them?
    I don't currently have eagle on my machine to test anything, sorry
