Re: Edit text and graphic properties behavior
The “Footprint graphic items” bug was a dyn_cast when a dynamic_cast was needed (dyn_cast doesn’t handle inheritance).
I can’t reproduce the “Other footprint fields” on fab layers problem.
As an aside, would you expect a footprint field with the text %R to get updated with “Other footprint fields” or “Footprint references”?
