Export negative svg from kicad-cli


I would like to automate my process for exporting negative svgs from KiCad using the CLI tools, but I could not find the CLI option for the “Negative plot” checkbox that is available in the SVG Plot dialog.

Do you have an idea about how I could transform the svgs once generated to negate them using command line tools?

Is it a feature that is present in versions after 7.0.1 which I am currently using?

As far as i see, this option is missing, after checking the source code (but i don’t know the source code structure very well, it is possible that i missed it).

You could create a feature request here: Issues · KiCad / KiCad Source Code / kicad · GitLab

So, I also went in the source code, and there was no argument for that.

I found it “not too difficult” to add it (with my computer engineering background):

It is now planned for version 8.0
