If you want to keep the entire copper area for grounding or power, you can use the “Copper” function.

After clicking, you can draw the copper area around the area you want to copper. You can draw directly outside the board border, and you don’t need to follow the board border. EasyEDA Pro will automatically cut the excess copper foil.

The top and bottom layers need to be drawn separately. A board can draw multiple copper areas and set them separately.
