Hello All,

i missed some default settings.

- "Pad Size Roundoff" for the TH Terminals
- "Solder Mask Annular Expansion"
- "Paste Mask (% of Pad Size)"

Also when the padstack is created it generates wrong pad names.
I checked the demo values for Chip Resistor and set "Solder mask .." to 0.1 and the Paste to 90% the program generates a name like in the picture in 2 diffrent versions.





Best Regards
Olaf Mueller

You have "File > Options > Pad Stack Rules > SMD Solder and Paste Masks" to globally set your Solder Mask and Paste Mask for all footprints. 

The Round-off is new in V2021 Console Options - Decimal Place Accuracy goes from 2 - 6 places for minimum and maximum. 

The defaults are currently 2 minimum and 3 maximum but you can set it to whatever you what for low or high resolution.
