Problem opening a PCB file
I've found a project on github  that I am interested in, but I have not been able to open the PCB file correctly. It seems that 5.1 is too old to handle this file, but 5.99 has several issues, as described in .
It looks like the ground plane is not being processed properly. I also noted that the three "zone" buttons on the left pane of pcb_new are grayed out, which seems very strange.
I'm not sure if the original project authors did something wrong. I see both a .pro and a .kicad_pro file in the directory, so they must have switched major releases at some point. But I'd still expect pcb_new to be able to deal with the board file.
