ZenitPCB Layout may assign to each net, a design rule that is enclosed in the "Net Class.
Each class can set the width of the trace ( Min - Typical - Max )
Furthermore you can set the clearance between the elements :
Pads-Pads \ Pads-Trace \ Trace-Trace and electrical elements\Copper Pour.
You can set a default via which will be used for the automatic via placement and color connections.
You can save a NetClasses setting file .
After creating the net class you can "join" each net with a class ( Net Property ).
e.g. net $GND you can assign the net class "GND".
