    This technote discusses the options available to you for creating over and under sizes globally, at the PCB decal level and for specific components. It also discusses how to modify your settings to apply global Over(under)size settings to just the electrical layer pads or to solder mask/paste mask pads sizes called out in the pad stacks as well.
