I created a custom footprint using the S-DIP wizard. The design rules checker seems to think the pads are vias and complains about my traces being too close.

red arrows from DRC

  1. What did I do wrong?
  2. What can be done to fix this? Should I ignore the warnings?

    \$\begingroup\$ Are the traces on the same net as the pads? I'm not sure what you mean by "seems to think the pads are vias"; they are vias. Plated through-hole pads are just big vias. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Can you post the exact warning (or error as it's red marker)? Are the pads and tracks definitely of the same net? What are your design rules? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Does your schematic show them connected? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ The pin number on the footprint must match the pin number (not the pin name!) on the associated schematic symbol. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 1, 2023 at 20:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ Okay, I messed with this a lot and it's working now. I believe the problem was caused by me replacing the footprint I had originally been using in the PCB but not in the schematic. \$\endgroup\$

I believe the problem was caused when I replaced the footprint only in the PCB but not in the schematic.
