Kicad 6 global design rules - track width list

V6 is wonderful. I’m still a newbie but so far my learning experience has been really good and everything is falling into place.

I would like to create a set of track widths (the usual, 008, 010, 012, 016, 024 and 036) and have them global rather than project specific.

I can’t find the menu/dialog to set this up.

Thanks for your help,

DougM

I don’t think that it’s possible to have this list global for all projects.

In the board Setup window try the button “import Settings…” on the bottom left of the dialog-window. It should allow you to copy the settings from your last project.
