When I want edit a trace width, I select a section of the trace, hit ‘U’ then ‘E’ to edit, choose a new width then OK. Short and sweet.
When I want to change board outline (or presumably any other graphics) I seem to need to select every segment, or mass select by dragging then filter the outline - OK so far so good - I hit ‘E’ for edit and nothing happens. Am I missing some other technique?
If this is missing functionality should I have a look through Gitlab Issues to see if someone has requested this? The code would already seem to exist for traces. One of the things that drove me crazy with Eagle is that almost nothing was orthogonal, meaning a key command or technique in one part of the program would not work in another part.
OK - the solution is:
The really excellent “Edit Text and Graphic Properties” dialog. Eliminated many minutes of clicking for no good reason.
Does that mean I no long wish I could just edit a selection as in other domains (traces) or PCB? Not at all. In my view the functionality should be there - but this fabulous editor makes it a lot less urgent.
