hi,
I have made a pcb and want to put a ground plane on the top layer. I created a copper pour obstacle and set it to attach to the ground net. My problem is the pins which are ground, connect to the plane with very thin traces approximately 10 mils. For example in the attached picture pin J2 on the bottom left side. Although, I have set the min. max and conn width of the GND net to be 50 mils. Can anyone suggest how can i make these tiny connections with more width.
Also, i want to put a silkscreen on top with all the texts, but don't know how to do it:(. Help would be greatly appreciated.

the width of connection between ground pins and ground plane can change from Thermal Relief Settings -> Spoke Width (this is in Orcad)
