Global edition of tracks and vias - kicad 5.0.2 - windows7_64 [SOLVED]

Dear Sir,
I am having problems to change tracks_width using the feature “Edit all tracks and vias” (menu: “edit”, “Edit all tracks and vias”).
The idea is to change many tracks belonging to the same net class.

What I did so far:

  • created a customized net class with a 0.5mm track width (“Setup”, “Design rules…” then tab “net class editor”).
  • added all needed nets to the new freshly created class (“Setup”, “Design rules…” then tab “net class editor”).
  • edit all the track belonging to the class (“Edit”, “Edit all tracks and vias”).
  • tick button: “set all tracks and vias to their netclass value”
  • click OK.

Unfortunately, none of the track get updated to the new width value… :frowning:

Would anyone tell me what am I doing wrong here?
Thx in advance,

It’s possible that there’s no room for wider tracks without violating DRC, in that case KiCad doesn’t change them. Try making some room around some track segments and test again.

You rock “eelik”. :slight_smile:
Thank you for your fast and valuable answer.
