Ok I will try itCan you numerically adjust the end point? In the case shown, change the y-coordinate to move the end point very slightly higher.
This is what I'm doing. But if there's more convenient way, it would be better
Yes, I like heavy trace because of this too. Actually in Altium, there is an option to automatically create a footprint based on your keyed-in values (called IPC something). I will choose bigger pads.I like heavy traces; it helps pull heat out of the part. Because I work in hot environments, at high current I often use trace widths that are about the same size as the pad.
Each CAD is different. Some have the option of how the trace starts and ends. (round/square)
I often use a very thick trace, end it slightly short of the target, downsize to small and bring the trace to the pad. It is extra work. In your case the small trace might be 0.5mm long.
Another option is to edit the "R0603" and move the pad center slightly to the outside.
