I need to make a rectangular hole about 1/4' by 1/16" for some make shift AC-Prongs. Can't seem to find anything in "Cadsoft" help file to make rectangular holes.

How would you drill a rectangular hole ?? :lol:

You can somehow approximate it by a series of evenly spaced holes.
I will be rough and it will need another tool/operation to detach it completly.

Start with the coreners and subdivide each edge.
Do not drill one after the other as this will damage the area.
And you have to leave a small gap in between holes,
or the board will rupture prematurely before finishing the whole rectangle.

  Can I do milling then instruct the board house?
