I have the following problem: some time ago I received my first ever Kicad-designed PCBs, and I noticed that there is no solder mask between pads for ICs with a pitch of 0.5. The pads are 0.3 wide, which means that there should be 0.2mm or at least 0.15 solder mask area. The PCB design closeup looks like this. The green area vetween the pads is about 0.05mm, so I would like to make it wider.
Dose anybody know how to do that? I opened the board settings an I thought it might be in the solder mask pane. But I set everything to 0, and the PCB doesn’t change at all, even after pressing B to redraw everything.
Does anyone know what exactly the purple / pink area is? I tried to disable the layers one by one, and this zone apparently disappears only if the pads disappear. What is the outline crossing a bit over the 2 pads? How can I change that?
Thanks for any hint.
