Re: gEDA-user: Fluky Fluky layout printing problem!

   I changed the clearance and mask size of a foot print in a design.  I
   saved the file.  I then did View->Displayed element name->Discription.
   I then did Edit->Edit name of->text on layout and changed the name of
   the foot print file to the new file.  I then saved the layout in PCB,
   exited PCB, restarted PCB and loaded the board again.  I exported
   gerbers and the solder mask has not changed.
   Am I changing the footprint correctly?

     Orange means a short circuit.  An easier way to update if you're
     the importer, is to View->Displayed Element Name->Description and
     change it, then re-import.  It will replace the footprint while
     retaining all the other information and position.
     As for the PDF, if you see the right thing in the PDF but it doesn't
     print right, the problem is between the PDF viewer and the printer.
