I have the question by shape of courtyard for connectors and non-standard packages.

What is the shape will be preferred for them - rectangle or contoured polygon?

Thank you for any help.

We always do a contoured courtyard but if the bends are slight, you can adjust the Courtyard to body and courtyard to pad to remove any bends. 

Example: make the Courtyard to Body 0.30 and the Courtyard to Pad 0.20.
