Options for generating netlist KICAD

I hava a question concerning the options for generating netlists.

When do I use “Delete tracks shorting multiple nets”; “Delete extra footprints”;“Delete single-pad nets”.
I could not find any infos/examples about this options.

Sometimes you have to change pins in schematic even though you have done the layout. That option will (if it works - I haven’t tried netlist importing for a while) try to delete at least some of the segments which violate DRC check after swapping pins.

Delete extra footprints deletes footprints which aren’t locked and not found in the netlist (not in the schematic).

Delete single-pad nets deletes nets attached to non-connected pins. Othewise you will see the long ugly autogenerated name net name for each non-connected pin.
