Hahahaha … so funny how one’s “hacker instinct” some times fails to kick in (at least at first).
Looky looky what I found inside the .kicad_pcb file:
(zone (net 116) (net_name GND) (layer Top.Cu) (tstamp 5BB807FC) (hatch edge 0.508) (priority 1)
At first I got a bit worried, since I did a Search for
zone, and found one, and there was no priority indicated anywhere … then I realized that maybe a priority 0, the default, is simply left unspecified (as it seems to be the case), so a Search for
priority showed the above.
Have I mentioned lately that I love KiCAD?! I often end up taking the “hacker route” and fire the text editor — with gEDA pcb (which is what I used for a couple of years before moving to KiCAD), you just find a sequence of space-separated numbers for all parameters; need to go online to look up the reference and figure out what each number is — the verbosity in KiCAD’s files is certainly an amazingly good feature!! (transparent for most users, I know — but it is developer/debugger friendly, and it is also helpful for users with hacker instincts, which I’m sure there are many out there!)
