I have problem in connecting two pads in pads layout 9.3 . In design rule under pads logic min. width is 0.1 mm , recommended is 0.2mm and max. is 0.3mm .
Tools -> pads layout is chosen and start to connect pads . short key w is pressed and 0.2 is entered . left mouse button is pressed and started to connected to another pad .After finished the line width is very narrow and is not 0.2mm . No matter how many times I tried the result is still the same , can someone help me ???

The conversion of units to 0.1mm results on ~4mils.
Take in mind that is not usual trakcs with that width.

Minimal width limit specified by manufacturers is generally 6mils.
I´m even not sure if there are some manufacturer that perform cuper corrosion so thin.

Its been awhile since I worked with Pads but I think there is a minimum visibility setting that will truncate any trace that is larger than setting. by changing the setting to lesser than your smallest trace width you should be ok.
