Bug Description

Run "Update PCB from Schematic" on a new schematic or open and existing board and delete the components before running.

The log message window has a number of Info, Action, Error and Warning items. These should be hidden by unchecking the "Show" checkboxes below but they do not appear to be.

@Seth, this works for me on OSX. GTK-specific?

@Devs, can anyone else reproduce this?

Wayne Stambaugh (stambaughw) wrote :

The filtering works fine on windows so this could be gtk specific. There is a somewhat confusing behavior. If show all is checked, unchecking any of the filter options has no effect. Show all must be unchecked first. Is it possible that this is what the user is seeing? It might be worthwhile to uncheck show all when any of the filter options are checked and check all of the filter options when show all is checked. The current behavior is a bit confusing.

How about replacing "Show all" with a button? Or change the behavior, so that toggling the "Show all" checkbox affects the state of the remaining ones?

@Orson, A "Show All" button works as well.

Or just make them click 3 times (assuming you never turn them all off, as that’s kind of useless).
