Marker persistence/hiding

Bug #1484488 reported by Simon Richter on 2015-08-13
This bug affects 11 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Allow saving and restoring markers from ERC/DRC, and allow negative/acknowledged markers that will be ignored if regenerated during a check.

This allows users to run DRC, manually check errors and mark things as manually inspected, which will hide the error.

This would be a cool feature. Might fit in with the new marker architecture in 6.0.

@Jeff, do you happen to have a reference to the discussion about the new marker architecture? I think I missed that discussion.

No discussion yet; I didn't want to bother the dev list with it until after 5.0 got out.

But basically the patch in my 6.0 tree uses the same weak-reference paradigm that I added to eeschema search to allow it to store pointers to the EDA_ITEMs referenced in the markers. The main goal was to be able to support highlighting (using the same code as Clarify Selection) when bringing up the context menu in the DRC dialog.

Maybe it makes sense to assign yourself and put the milestone for 6.0 if this bug covers this and would like to follow up on it. Feel free.
