Bug Description

Application: Pcbnew
Version: (2012-11-16 BZR 3805)-testing

The objective of this feature is "negative offset around PTH vias".

It is best understood by viewing the attached image, a snippet from Wurth Elektronik's PCB Basic Design Guide.

To currently achieve the desired effect, (a negative-offset solder mask around vias ONLY) a global solder mask negative offset value needs to be specified - and that in turn needs over-riding with (normal) positive offset at footprint level; for every component pad. This is inefficient and will almost certainly result in introduced errors.
