Because of: Copy items between layers I experimented a bit with creating an array of pads in a footprint, and the numbering confuses me. Therefore I post here (first) instead of creating an issue on Gitlab.
Create a new footprint.
Place a pad in it.
Change the pad number to 42.
Right click the pad and select the “Create Array” entry from the popup menu.
Then create an array of pads (Either row or column) and select: "Initial Pad Number: (*) From start value"
The result is a column of pads numbered 1 to 5:
The result I expected was to have pads numbered 42 through 46.
Is this a bug, or am I misinterpreting that dialog in some way?
I have verified this both in V5.1.9 and in Version: 5.99.0-unknown-56f6e7cc17~117~ubuntu20.04.1, release build
