Clearance for single track segment
I know this topic has been discussed from time to time but I don't know of any progress so I want to bring it to attention again. Especially when routing RF traces it is important to keep a specific or minimum clearance to the surrounding filled zones. KiCAD handles this adequate with the exception of connections to ICs. There are the possibilities to either use net ties or fine tune zones but it is a PITA, especially if you have many different nets with different widths and clearance requirements. The thing is that even if you overwrite the net clearance of the pad with a smaller value, the clearance of the trace connecting to the pad has the higher priority. So please consider allowing to change the clearance of single track segments, as I can change the clearance of single pads or the width of single track segments to allow an easy connection of traces with specific clearance requirements to ICs.
