Improvements in v1.3

  • Fixed problem with KiCad 7.0.2
  • Per layer selection to plot footprint values and/or reference designators
  • Widget that shows the color of the selected layer
  • Replaced PyPDF4 1.27.0 with pypdf 3.7.0
  • Settings are disabled and enabled to show if currently available
  • Shows the user selected layer name after the standard layer name

For basic functionality Board2Pdf uses pypdf which is included when installing Board2Pdf. You don’t need to install any dependencies if this functionality is enough for you.

If you install PyMuPDF you can create the pdf files about ten times faster.
