Changing the Layer for a Group of Lines

A similar topic was posted previously but I use a work-around which was not mentioned.

The work-around is helpful when importing dxf objects and changing multiple objects layers. When importing a dxf Pcbnew will prompt with options. The default layer is Dwgs.User. Instead toggle the layer to the preferred layer.

It’s not a tremendous amount of work but I will import the dxf multiple times and toggle the layer specific to the required layer.

In time I hope Kicad will include multiple selected object layer change functionality.


For your usecase it might even be better to have the option to control which dxf layer is put onto which kicad layer. (You could look at the bugtracker if this feature has already been requested.)

But for some other usecases multiple selection editing would indeed be the only option.
