Default thermal pad on Eagle

hi,
attempted my first pcb design in Eagle.. i created a groundplane but Eagle doesn't connect components to groundplane, instead outputs empty borders around the holes.. attached pictures are what i got and settings of groundplane? what should i do to connect them?
thanks in advance..

Did you rename the polygon to GND? Oh, I See, in the scematics, the GND is also named GND?

I don't know how to solve this problem without using a scematic. Perhaps u could go for a star grounding
