Hi Jean-Pierre,

I've had a quick go with PlEditor, and I noticed a few things:

(1) In the General Options tab under the Properties pane on the right
hand side I noticed the tab order of the controls appears to be broken.
You can't tab between any of the controls.

fixed in rev 4304

(2) If you select text then move the mouse into the page layout view the
selection is removed. I noticed whilst trying to select the margin
values to change them.

Certianly due to the fact the Properties pane looses the focus.
No fixed.

(3) When editing a text object the Text Height and Text Width fields are
have opposite meanings so editing the height alters the text width.

fixed in rev 4304

(4) When saving a page layout the .kicad_wks extension doesn't get added
to the filename.

fixed in rev 4304

I noticed that even with the standard sheet, the legend expands to
include space for all four comments. Has this always been the case? I
thought that part of the page layout used to collapse if the comments
weren't used and only expanded if they did?

Anyway, it doesn't matter much to me now because I can just remove them
from my layout! ;-)

See Lorenzo's response.
This feature needs dependencies between items.
This is hard to code and hard to use.

And, like you say, because you can create the layout you want, this is not a major issue.

Apart from that it looks pretty good. I've longed to be able to edit the
page layout for so long, thanks so much for adding the functionality!

Best Regards,


Thanks for you report.
