Bug Description

Vias are created tented. So far, I have not found any description in the manual of to how to change this behavior, nor any description of how to un-tent the via once it has been created. I did see a mention in a blog that there is keyboard shortcut, "k", this does not seem to work. I have been correcting this manually by editing the PCB file.

Hi,

I tried to reproduce this bug with pcb-4.0.2 (in the gtk UI).

The command MinMaskGap executed within the pcb command entry (invoked with ":") works as advertised in the manual for pins in elements.

For example ":MinMaskGap(Selected,1.0mm)" gives the result on a single selected pin inside an elemnet.

This does not work for me on a single selected via (either solo or inside a polygon, with or without thermals).

So I can confirm this bug for pcb-4.0.2.

Kind regards,

Bert Timmerman.

Hi,

This bug is getting strange ...

Searching the web I found a 9 year old mailing list thread you mentioned in your initial report (http://geda-user.delorie.narkive.com/6GluA3z7/deafult-gap-between-copper-pin-pad-and-resist).

This thread mentions hovering over the tented via and pressing [k] or [shift]+[k] for increasing/decreasing the gap ... this works for me as expected.

Invoking the "MinMaskGap(Selected,1.5mm)" command in the command entry worked too after this test, except in one instance ... and after that it resumed working.

Bug report #929123 mentions fragile code ... and it looks like that indeed.

I think this issue needs to be addressed after the pcb-4.1.0 release so I put these two reports on the pcb-4.1.1 todo list.

To be continued.

Kind regards,

Bert Timmerman.

The "k" does not work for me.

I think I might differ in the severity. This would be a real show stopper
except for manually editing the PCB file.
