Post irregular shaped PCBs
Can someone give me instruction on how to draw an irregular shaped PC board?

Use something simple like a board with a couple of cutouts in it.

I have been able to make components with cutouts defined as User Milling Unplated and this seems to
be just fine with the PCB manufacturer as they have given me what I wanted. But I dont see
the User Milling Unplated option when I am defining a new BOARD object.

I am actually trying to make a half moon cutout in the bottom center of a board.

I tried one approach and received this error. Can someone please interpret the last line of text?

"Layer <Milling type 1/ Milling Type 2> are superseded by
layers <Board Outline Cut> or/and <User Milling Plated/Unplated>.
Please use new layers and way how to define <absense> of material!"
