My English skills sometimes fail because I do not have lot occasions
to practice. Apologize.

The important question was: why there are no unfilled circles on
tracks ends where holes are present in PCB? Cylinders are present as I
can see looking at some angle, but most holes are clogged up (is this
proper expression for blinded end?).

Two above are separated questions not related to first one.

By "selection" I meant menu options, which do not have ticks marking
activation and deactivation of the particular option.
