Hello all,

Can anybody explain me, how i can control Solder Mask to Legend Gap, as displayed on this image.

Have PCB Library any tool for this or only manually?

By standard, Is this gap for Polarity Marker or for all legend?

Different companies use different solder mask swells. You must add your Swell + the Solder Mask Clearance to determine the total Pad to Legend Clearance. 

For Library Expert Enterprise, it is a one time setting in Preferences > Drafting > Legend > Clearance

For Library Expert Pro, you must manually change the clearance value in the calculator "Drafting" tab Clearance for every part you create.
