It would be great if IC pads were “non-round” pads ( not sure what they actually call them ) or there was an option to specify the type you want, much like the pads of a dip switch in Fritizng, non-round pads make it MUCH easier to route traces between IC pins when making homemade boards as there is more space between them which means you don’t have to go below 16 mil traces.
With round IC pads you have to go as low as 7 mil traces to be safe and not getting a warning from DRC.
using 8 mil doesnt go well and gives a warning.
7 mil traces is totally not something easy to work with when dealing with homemade PCBs.
Fritizng Fab Service specifies that as the minimum size .
