Puzzled by track too close error


#1

I find this puzzling.

You’ve got a small leftover track segment uder the pad 4 where the red arrow points to. You can for example use the Layers Manager/Items to hide all footprints to see it.

Well done!

I like to show pads in outline and sometimes tracks too, to make it easier to see these track fragments

That’s an easier trick.

It’s possible to make pads semi-transparent which makes it easier to see tracks behind copper pads, but holes are opaque black. I added a wishlist bug report for making it configurable. https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1840177

Yes. That is what I too would suspect at the very outset.

Try deleting orphan tracks. Edit–> Clean up tracks and Vias

Guess your problem would vanish.

The Items panel on the right hand side too is phenomenal… The other day, I was searching for micros and all it took me to Hide all items except Micros 10 secs., I caught hold of the last Micro I was desperately looking for
