My second "show stopper" bug for me, using V5 RC2
I also reported this in the bug tracker, again sorry for the double up.
I was trying to layout a board, but Kicad is refusing to let me lay
tracks or vias in close proximity to the board edge. Its highlighting
the edge, and ignoring any command to drop the via or track segment.
The problem is, this proximity seems to be uncontrollable, I can't find
any option which sets it, or even references it.
Further, the proximity is a really long way from the board edge, which
makes routing a tight board tedious because you need this excessive and
For example, this is fine: http://i.imgur.com/5hAzrhL.png
But this is not: http://i.imgur.com/2wBHePK.png
You can also see the "halo" is well over the via, and would cover it in
So, it just looks and feels wrong, and seems totally uncontrollable. I
should be able to place the annular ring of the via right up against the
edge of the fill of the zone. Now it may be this isn't a bug and i have
my setup wrong, and i would be pleased if it were the case, but if it is
so, then the option controlling this isn't obvious at all, and the halo
being shown still looks wildly off.
