    Dear friends,

    It’s about location. As long as it’s covered entirely by the layer it’s on and your label is within the pin, the dimensions don’t matter

    Various reasons. Visibility on large layouts, requirements for various tools, etc.

    Thank you for your kind answer,

    No I am confirmed that pin size has no affect on the electrical proparties of the circuit
