Put holes in through hole pads in gerber

Usually, I use smd on home brew boards so I don’t have to drill holes. Not an option here.

Can I have pcbnew draw holes in the pads when it exports the gerber to make it easier to drill these #64 holes? I thought there was a checkbox for that in the export gerber dialog.

I have KiCad Version 5.0.2

Oh. I don’t have to export to gerber to get a good print. The print button in pcbnew now fills it in solid instead of trying to halftone it. There is an option there “Pads Drill Options.”

Problem solved! Thanks.
