F4.3 Connected copper elements have the same pad number

Footprints that contain multiple pads or conductive elements that are physically connected require special attention:

  1. Multiple pads that are physically connected must share the same number

  2. Thermal vias (if present) must share the same number as the thermal pad to which they are connected
