I use Linux exclusively, but still some remarks:
I always check gerbers in a gerber viewer, so a plugin to do automatic zipping would not add much for me. Then there are extra complications because even if you always use the same manufacturer, you still may want to adjust several settings before making gerbers. Not all PCB’s are 2 layer boards. some have gold plating, manufacturers offer different price points for different accuracy classes, etc.
But I see something else on the horizon. There are quite a lot of settings for generating Gerbers:
To have an easy and quick way to Save or Load these settings from a file does seem a very useful option. This seems such a logical option that I suspect it’s already a wishlist item on gitlab.
This option is for example already implemented for Hotkeys:
Pcbnew / Preferences / Preferences / Hotkeys and then: [Import] or [Export].
Thumbs up by me from 6 to 7 on:
The topic itself is about all the plot settings, but Gerbers are mentioned explicitly. Part of the Idea is that PCB manufacturers can make such a file available for KiCad that works with their process.
