A few weeks ago I had the need to convert a graphical layer to a copper layer, but couldn’t do it. The objects on the graphical layer were very simple (lines only - not even any arcs), but lots of them. I ended up redrawing it…
Perhaps there is a macro/script that will do this, but I could not find one.
Is there a reason why I can’t convert lines to tracks (and presumably vice-versa)?
The way in V5 to have anything at Edge.Cuts in footprint was to draw it at one of user layers and then use Find/Replace in text editor. Footprint editor didn’t allowed to add anything at Edge.Cuts but accepted if anything were at that layer.
In past my footprint conception changed few times (regarding layers used for reference and value). Instead of opening each footprint and manually changing layers I used Notpead++ that allows to do that automatically not only in just opened file but in all (selected by mask) files at once.
I suppose (not sure) that what you needed you could in V6 done by replacing in PCB file one layer name with the other.
