Also, we shrink the board to its final size ny squishing the components together some more.

Is it more practical as a rule to have power planes or ground planes?

Step 16: I didn't know you could have components lying partly outside the big white rectangle. I'm glad you showed me this.

You can even have parts of components, and even traces, outside the "limited area" of the freeware/etc version, as long as all the actual PADs and SMDs are inside the allowed area.
