Bug Description

It is not possible to use Edge.Cut in Footprint by default.
But it is possible by importing a DXF to Edge.Cut layer.

So, editing the imported line, I get this warning:
"This item was on a forbidden or non-existing layer. It has been moved to the first allowed layer."

When I click Ok, the selection on the Layer dropdown list is EMPTY. So, it was not moved to the first allowed layer. Then, If I click OK (with empty layer) Kicad crashes.

Please, enable Edge.Cut on footprints. It is good to store borders outlines for reuse. SURE, it is possible to give the warning saying that it is not a valid layer for a regular part footprint.

*USING the latest nightly.
