1: Three more of those combo box things - Click Cutout, click Bridge Gaps: Manual; In both (Generate Manual Geometer) and (Cut by Drilling). Also in (NCC, Generate Geometry); The NCC combo box changes.

2: In Gerber Editor - the Delete Aperture button doesn’t work and the Right Click Delete Apertures doesn’t work

3: In the Editor Area, Gerber Editor pop up window, the Poligonize button does not work. If you select on of the Apertures (turn blue) and click the Poligonize button, a Save Changes dialogue box opens and the pop up editor window will no longer open… ever, until restarted.

    Hi Steve,

    Issues 2 and 3 are solved in the latest commits on my repo. Issue 1 will be solved later .
    Thank you for the report!

    The Gerber Editor is still acting weird… First thing after opening the Editor, click on the (Region) in the pop-up editor window. A circle will appear around the cursor. This also happens right after any object is deleted. 2: If you delete an object (any of the Apertures) and then click on the (Poligonize) without anything selected, it will undo the delete. If you delete a C Type, etc., then it will be undone as Poligonize.

    That is normal. In order to add a Region you need first to have a tool selected (an aperture selected). The application preselects for you one aperture (I think it is the last one loaded) if you forgot to select one before you run the Region command and therefore the circle you see is the utility shape that is displayed before you actually start to draw.

    This also happens right after any object is deleted.

    Can you elaborate on that?

    That is fixed now in the latest commit in my repo. The reason was that I did not cleared the storage for selection and since in order to delete an aperture it needs to be first selected (which automatically selects all the shapes associated with that aperture) they survived inside this storage.

    You are right on the Region - It preselects the last aperture loaded. When an Aperture is deleted, it preselects the first one in the list. I can’t figure out the reason for the Aperture tool when drawing a Region. I can see why you need the Aperture tool for drawing the Track (trace), but I don’t understand the purpose of a big wide line when drawing the Region.

    At the moment of the design it made sense. I guess after I decided to store all regions in a “fake” aperture with ID 0 then it didn’t made sense anymore. I will try to redo it such that it automatically select the '0' aperture when starting a Region.

    Ok, behavior changed for the Region Tool in the Gerber Editor. Changes are in the latest commit on my repo.
