Unexpected char error in GerberView

Hi all,

I am new to KiCad and I was doing a fun project. I finished the project and generated the gerber files and the drill files. Then I tried to load it in the GerberView in KiCad. For some reason I am getting some errors.

After closing the error window, the board loads up. I am wondering if I made a mistake and will it affect the manufacturing project?

That’s a small bug; KiCad let’s you select a drill file along the gerbers from the same Open dialog view but gives this error. As long as you see what you need in the actual view, everything is OK.

EDIT: a job file, not a drill file; see #4844.
