Irregular switch contact area

I need two large irregular shaped switch contact areas on the PCB like these: ![guncon 2 switch contact pad 1.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/PpWprOP0yRyp8YrGX02n7yAO7cqIVOkDBcLuUTPU.png)![guncon 2 switch contact pad 2.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/6BKZV61sKr0BUGziQEHWgwCzCzH85f9gMPCaAkcO.png)![guncon 2 switch contact pad 3.png](//image.easyeda.com/pullimage/BY5Lp5vcAXgRfL9FYbyJgsitDit2ocYtdrD0TCEM.png) I can't find anything similar in the parts library.  My biggest concern is if I attempt to design something like this myself the design will be visible but a layer applied over it will prevent the contact from working. Thank you for any help.  I am new to EasyEDA and this is my first PCB.

Hi You can create a new footprint, use arc and track and right-click convert to pad

See: [https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/How-to-create-a-capacitive-touch-pad-f6395e879953426bb6c31531553ac160](https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/How-to-create-a-capacitive-touch-pad-f6395e879953426bb6c31531553ac160)<br> <br> but do not change the default paste mask setting. That will expose the copper of the resultant pads giving you bare pads with the surface finish that you specify for your board.

So I would create a schematic symbol with two pins and then create a footprint for the two pins?

@SteveSimpson, An even simpler option is to place a symbol for any 2 pin header, resistor or the K2-3.6x6.1_SMD 2 pin switch from the EELib and then simply assign your footprint to that symbol by clicking on its Footprint attribute and then Searching for the name of your footprint in the Footprint Manager.
