Re: 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
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.
Just delete the .kicag_prl file, or reenable the visibility of objects.
