Optocoupler SMD parts (and changing existing parts)

I’m trying to add the PC817 as SMD variant. I have succesfully created the SMD alternative and Fritzing recognizes it partially (it won’t give overlapping errors for the holes). However the holes are still present and exported to the production sketch.
I have set all holes to be pads, but cannot for the love of me get them to change.
I’m a newb, so there might be something I’m not doing correctly.


If you post your modified part here someone will likely be able to point out your error. You may also find help in one of these:

Thanks vanepp, I´ll check out those tutorials first.

I ended up just creating it directly on the PCB with pads and a silk image.
