Bug Description

The "print" operation in Pcbnew fills copper zones; there doesn't appear to be an option to print in "outline" mode. With interior planes it is impossible to see tracks on either the top or bottom layers, though footprints on both top and bottom are visible. It's also expensive in terms of ink/toner.

Built from sources on a private branch derived from the following Git commit:
    09622a4 Replace messageBox with assert for non-fatal error.
