[sdiy] PCB faceplate large hole creation?

Yes it does seem to handle all the manufacturing quirks.   For analogue PCBs I find it easiest to just design in EasyEDA, whilst for digital ones I use Zuken but then import into EasyEDA for a final check and to send it off to them.  

As a test I imported the open-source Raspberry Pi CM4 IO card into EasyEDA from KiCad and it had quite a few errors that KiCad apparently wasn't throwing up.

I'm sure Mike can answer this better than I can, but I'm assuming EasyEDA accounts for any manufacturing quirks JLCPCB has, since it's their tool.  That said, I've never had an issue uploading Gerber from Diptrace, along with CSV BOM and PnP files for PCB fab and assembly (although I do edit the BOM and PnP files a bit to match their formatting examples and part numbers).
