I have a lot of questions where I have a solution, but I think this solution is far away from the professional way... I was searching the manual and this forum but I still stuck.
Changing properties: E.g. I drawed a circle with a solid filling. Now I want to change the circle to an unfilled style. The solution can't be to delete and draw it again...
Select shape/Edit properties; make the filled/unfilled changes necessary (some subclasses DO NOT allow you to have filled/unfilled shapes, so beware)
History in command window: I like the command window to enter coordinates. But what I really miss is an history. Pressing the up arrow like in the Bash results in paning of the main window...
Make sure you've selected the command line window. You will have to select it, or the main window stays active for pointer.
Drawing Symbols: I have a problem with understanding the layers assembly_top and silkscreen_top. Do I really need booth? What is the best way to copy one layer to the other?
Assembly top normally references the assembly drawing; Silkscreen normally relates to the silkscreen information that will phyically be on the board (gerber output).
Selecting Objects: When I want to select an object, and another object is above it, I can not select it. I have to hide the layer which I don't want select and then it's possible. After that I have to reset the visibility. But this seems to be long winded...
RMB Reject. The is a user preference you can change to change the REJECT actions, so you can do it multiple time; or that a popup will show you all the elements available to select.
Good day, and best of luck. Welcome aboard.
