Bug Description

In the footprint editor it's impossible to create or remove corner points of polygons. The respective options are not present in the context menu, as they are in the board editor.

We don't support Add/Remove Corner for polygons at all. We do for zones, which can act much like polygons on the board, but aren't supported in footprints (wishlist already logged for that).

I see. But since it's possible to create multi-point polygons (not zones) in the editors, being not able to add/remove vertices afterwards seems a bit inconsistent.

OK, I turned the bug into a wishlist for corner editing for polygons.

I'd like this too. I haven't seen it for fill zones either though at least as of v5.0.0-rc3.

@Tom, I saw mention of this in the fundraising video. If it's Orson that's working on it instead of you, please re-assign.

The fix only works for footprints. Should be extended to board editor as well.
