need help with my circuit design, how do i fix the overlaps? Answered

im trying to build a switch interface but i am having an issue of overlapping pcb 'wire things' is my solution to use double sided or by adding some new components?

Judging by how it looks, it appears like KiCad's schematic view. Are you trying to do a PCB layout? You need to create a netlist and then open up the PCB editor in kicad and import that netlist. It might fail if you don't give the parts appropriate packages.

Through hole resistors are nice because they allow you to pass traces underneath them. If that is not enough in order to do the routing, you can use a multi-layer board. 2 layers (top and bottom) is generally enough, unless you start doing some crazy stuff with large BGA packages like FPGAs, far more advanced stuff.

Still some layouts are so simple that one can see the trace net inside the old grey cells at a glance ;-)

Again a demo layout using THole or SMT resistors one sided PCB with no overlap...

Then there are the simple solutions of using an insulated wire jumper...

It is very strange that with your skill you have never noticed these PCB trace solutions...

At the schematic level or on the printed circuit board design? If circuit board, you can either use wire jumpers to "hop" over things, or use a via on a dual or mulitilayer board (PCB).

if schematic, you've executed that correctly (with the exception of Audio-jack-4, which should terminate in a "dot" at the 10K resistor between 5V and A0 )
