Bug Description

There is a serious bug in nightly builds which prevents me from drawing any new zones or cutouts. Both of the tools do not work on both Cairo and OpenGL at all - there is no line behind the mouse cursor and no points are created when clicking or closing the polygon via context menu. However, it seems that only happens with some projects. Once drawn, they can be normally manipulated - moved around, size changed, points added. Right now, I can draw zones only using legacy toolkit and then switching back to OpenGL.

Should be fixed in the next nightly. As a temp work-around, you can create the polygon when you hold "Ctrl" to use 45º mode.

For your (whoever's) information, this happens with graphic polygons in the footprint editor, too. The latest Windows nightly build is from 10th of December but the fix isn't there, at least I can't draw zones or polygons. The mentioned work-around with Ctrl works.
