Re: GAL canvas strategy - testers needed!



Here’s a few things I found on OSX 10.13.6, Retina iMac:

-Click+dragging on a symbol starts a selection rectangle instead of moving the symbol

-With the schematic and PCB windows open at the same time, clicking a footprint on the PCB makes the schematic jump and zoom, but it doesn’t always put the selected component in view. Often the entire schematic is zoomed out and/or panned off-screen. It seems to be inconsistent, that is, it doesn’t always pan and zoom to the same place when clicking on the same component.

-Likewise, I have to double-click a symbol in eeschema to have it highlight in the PCB window. This opens up the Symbol Properties dialog box as well. Single clicking seems to have no effect.

-When changing the anti-aliasing mode, immediately after closing the Preferences window, the schematic pane goes solid blue for a moment. The toolbars stay normal, just the center pane turns blue.

-Toggling the “Use touchpad to Pan” setting has no effect until Eeschema is closed and re-opened.

-Junctions are drawn underneath components. Not sure if this is good or bad, just different from the non-GAL version.

-I get this Debug Alert when I use the wire tool. It happens whenever I end a wire segment by double-clicking:

/Users/design/src/kicad-mac-builder/build/kicad/src/kicad/common/dlist.cpp(104): assert "item->GetList() == &aList" failed in append().

Do you want to stop the program?
You can also choose [Cancel] to suppress further warnings.

Hope that helps! Really happy to see this come along
