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

   How did you doe his? With the accel key [k] ?
   I changed the clearance and mask values of the pad statements in the
   footprint file and re-named the file which is in my gaf/pcb-elements
   folder.  I then followed DJ's suggestion copied below:
   Orange means a short circuit.  An easier way to update if you're using
   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.

     Sounds like you assumed footprints in pcb work similar to symbols in
     By default, symbols are loaded from the lib on start-up of gschem.
     If symbols
     change in the lib they change in the circuit, too. Footprints in PCB
     are a
     different beast. They are instatianted by gsch2pcb. The layout
     itself has no
     connection to the library.

     Did you see the mask grow or shrink when the solder mask layer is
     switched on?
