One of my projects have some SMD components on the back side of PCB (2-layer)
In 4.0.7, I’ve used normal “front” footprints, and selected “Board side: Back” for footprint properties. This way my “Front” (footprint definiton) pads have been placed on Bottom copper.
However, if I open my PCB in 5.0.0, these components are invisible. They are there (you can find them using Ctrl+F, the copper plane avoids them) but they are not visible on the bottom nor on the front layer.
In the same project I use also few compoents that are placed on “Front” (Footprint properties > Board side: Front) but are defined with “Back copper” pads (so kind of “special back footprints”). This was done before I’ve noticed I can move the whole Footprint to Back side, and these are rendered OK in 5.0.0.
The same happens in Legacy and Modern toolset.
Am I missing something?
