Bug Description

I am currently creating a python abstraction for ring pads similar to the ones needed for these parts:

While experimenting with it i discovered that paste margin behaves very strange when creating a ring like pad from a circle primitive plus a circular anchor.

Positive paste margin setting results in the hole being ignored (paste looks like the outer diameter of the ring represented a circular pad)

A negative clearance does not result in a ring like paste layer but in an arc.

The mask layer behaves exactly the same as the paste layer with positive margin. Negative margin does not seem to be allowed as i get an error message for it.


Additional note: One can not see paste with the default color settings (as it has the same color as copper) i therefor used this one: (One of the main goals of it was to make footprint development easier)
