Bug Description

This question was originally asked on sci.electronics.design by another


It seems that sometimes when I do a 'Move selected Elements to the other Side'
in pcb-lesstif the pads will change size. It's transient tho'.
Rotating resolves the issue as does saving and reloading.
Just moving around does not.

It does show up in the export:

Might there be something wrong in the setup/cfgfile? (units?)
or is it the footprint? (it was written in a text editor)


looking at the .pcb file something seems to have happened to the coordinates...
not sure if it's the cause...


Thank you,

The png seems a little funny to me. Both parts appear on the same side?

Anyway, this patch seems to fix the problem, and I don't see any obvious adverse effects.

One small thing, in order to be "C compliant" the Coord definition needs to be at the beginning of the block. I moved it up and push the commit.
