Re: [Patch] Add ability to reset Pcbnew layer colors to default



Ian's patch resets the layer colors back to the hard coded default layer
colors.  I know this isn't a complete solution but it might be handy
until you finish the full layer color changes.  Unless this interferes
with something you are working on, I'm fine with merging this patch as a
short term solution.


You accidentally committed your Doxygen error log file.  I don't think
we would want to merge that into the KiCad source.  If Jon is OK with
merging this, you please resubmit the patch without your Doxygen error
log file.
