Hi,
My circuit has an input of 3V provided by a little Button Cell Battery and the default size width of the Net/connection lines is 0.33 mm, how do I decide what is the right width size for connections?
Thanks

first determine what is the worst case current for that circuit. this will control smallest trace width for your Cu thickness (usually 1oz/ft^2)
but that may result in trace that is way too thin for manufacturing or... too expensive to manufacture. in that case feel free to increase trace width to practical/affordable size.
