Drill Sheet -> drill sheet (PostScript)
Drill Report-> Drill report

Full release will include:
1. Vias drils + Copper sizes around them
2. Drills (as it now does)
3. Pad sizes separately for all shapes (to change a
padsizes-thru-all-modules by creteria Shape/old size/new/size).

All: I also make a ghostscript -> tiff .ps printout + Photoshop macros
to obtain a "copper flooded design". Is it possible to use native
methods in Kicad (all free areas fill as coper polygons)?
