i am reworking an old design and i found several errors like that in the photo.

i am looking for a rule to show this as a DRC error, but i could not find any setting to report this. creepage seems to work only between different nets.

what i would like to get is a DRC error for same net track to track and track to pad.

Ok, i found a way to show this errors, but i dont like the way it is working...

under Technology -> Net Names -> Check Same Net.

this throws a lot of unneccessary DRC

as a feature request:
i would like to have a general structure rule for a whole layer.
for example check layer top and dont allow structures smaller than 0.1mm for example. not between this and that and all types cross checking.
as a result i can export a gerber and know that layer xy has no smaller structure than 0.1mm.
thats the important thing for DFM as the manufacturer cannot produce the stencils and stuff if structures are too small.
