Creating PADS in Solidworks

Hi,

 

I have the Student Version of Solidworks (2013, x64). I'd like to create a PCB in Solidworks and then export it to Circuitworks. If I extrude a wafer type structure and then place a extrusion called "Board_Outline1", then Circuitworks will correctly identify the area. If I try the same thing but calling it "Pads1", then Circuitworks does not seem to identify the pad region correctly.

 

This seems to correspond to what the help indicates

Do I need to specify something additional so that circuitworks knows it's an electrical area?


Thanks for the help.
