I finished designing a board in Eagle, but I noticed that one of my parts has the pads overlapping (picture below).

I tried to change the pad size in the library (below). It displays well there. When I import to the board, I still get the same problem.

Did anyone experience similar problems? I don't seem to find a solution, or even understand why this is happening.

Thanks in advance,

Hello,

You have discovered the effect of the restring setting in the DRC. It's overriding the pad sizes defined in your library because they are below the minimum specified in the restring.

Best Regards,

Rachael

Yes. I was trying to fix that earlier. It seems like the diameter and drill size was large in the original package too.  I downloaded it from ultralibrarian.
With combination of modifying the package and changing DRC settings, it seems like the issue is now solved.

Cheers,
