Re: Vias in Pcbnew


Isaac a écrit :

Greetings to All,

I'm new to the group, so I ask forgiveness to my ignorance, but...

Why aren't the vias in Pcbnew drawn WYSIWYG on the screen if it is so easy to do so?

Vias must be easy to locate, so they must differ from pads.
This is important for hight density boards.
These boards can use also microvias, and blind and buried vias. One *must* see easily these different vias, that can overlap, and tracks usually overlap.
For 6 copper layers (and more) boards, this is not an easy task.
So i do not understand the meaning of WYSIWYG for superimposed buried vias (incuding microvias)
