What behavior do you mean?
In 4.0 and nightly from few days ago zones on non copper layers:
- have outline drawn like zones, not like graphic polygons (I mean difference in size) - can be displayed in outline mode (hatched, fully hatched etc), polygons can't


Moreover, zones have tools like "create corner", "add cutout", "merge", while polygons do not.

I went back to an older version of master (back around September of last year) and I can't make a zone on a non-copper layer that behaves like a copper zone.  Even when using the zone tool, they behave like graphic polygons. Were you able to do this up until Orson's recent change? If so, how do you do it?

    Polygons do work, but they are different kind of object than zones
    and I think they both should be there.

    I think zones suppose to flood, while polygons should be always solid.

    Polygons do not currently have "do not show filled".

    There are many designs which already have zones on non coppers
    layers, so Kicad will have to support them anyway, but users won't
    be able to place new ones?

    Also note that there is difference in how zone vs polygon outline
    is drawn. When you draw 10x10mm zone, resulting object will have
    the same dimensions, but polygon will be 10x10mm + outline width.

    The graphical polygon tool works for non-copper layers.

    Andrzej, does this tool not work?

        Orson,

        Is there any reason not to allow zones to be drawn on
        non-copper layers?
         The changes you made in this commit would seem to indicate
        there was a
        reason not to allow this.  I'm going to hold off on rc1 until
        we get
        this resolved.

        Thanks,

        Wayne
