Bug Description

I have reported a Bug #1811821 being not avare that I am working in Legacy Toolset (F9). When I got that knowledge I have written there how r12136 behaved in that subject (probably not important now).

I have installed todays Windows 64 nightly (r12157). Now it is better but still F9 is default if not run PcbNew.
Is better because I didn't noticed automatic change to F9 after once set F11 what had place in r12136.

Step by step:
1. delete Roaming/kicad dir,
2. run KiCad
3. open pic_programmer.pro (a copy in my working dir) as without it nothing works.
4. run Footprint Editor
5. Look into settings - I am in F9

You are working in Footprint Editor in F9 till you first run PcbNew.

I am at stage of preparing my libraries so didn't run PcbNew. I was sure that since 5.0.0 default is Modern Toolset so didn't checked it.

I'll set this low as running pcbnew once will resolve this unless there are knock-on effects.

Hi Jeff-

After this change, eeschema no longer saves the fallback state. If I edit the config file to be canvas_type=2, I can get cairo to start on open. But if I select OpenGL (when not supported), I get the message saying "Could not use OpenGL, falling back to software rendering". But it saves canvas_type=1 and gives me the same message again on starting next time. Apart from editing the config file, I can no longer get it to save Cairo as my default.

@Seth, was the Kicad Janitor 5 hours late, or was your message referring to an earlier change?

If it was referring to 7bec707160d4834b141a908ac3e18c619b4829a7, that would be a pretty good trick as I only changed footprint_edit_frame.cpp and pcb_edit_frame.cpp. (Not that I haven't managed pretty good tricks before.)

JP did make some changes here earlier. Perhaps that's what sunk eeschema?
