    I've managed to either create or find footprints for all of my parts on my PCB project except for the DPAK and D2PAK. The file attached shows the footprints (2) that I need, and also shows what I'm getting when I try to make the footprint myself.

    I'm using FreePCB. The footprint wizard is nice enough but I wish it gave a few more options, might help me. Anyways... point being, if anyone either has these footprints already, or is better at footprint wizard than me, it sure would help me out a lot if you would share them with me.

    Let me first say, I have never used FreePCB. Do you get more options if you change the footprint type in the top row? Right now it appears to be set up as a DIP (Dual Inline Package), which is a very specific package type.

    I am sure you have jump to position command, or perhaps you can edit the position on each pad. In this case this will be the simplest way to do things.
    A hint Always print out your PCB on paper in size 1:1. Then place dummy components to check if they fit. You do not have to do it on all components just some reference components
