Support arc element as part of a copper zone outline, as well as combination of lines and arcs in footprint editor primitives - custom pad shape
Wish: to allow arcs as a subpart of a copper zone outline. Right now, I find myself creating huge PCB files because I need to approximate circular outlines with 1000 small little segments that form a closed quasicircular polygon.
Note: this has been mentioned in the forum, so I add it to the tracker to not forget it. https://forum.kicad.info/t/zuken-cr-5000-to-kicad-converter/22923/7?u=ferdymercury
Steps to reproduce
- Open PCBnew
- Try to draw a circular copper zone.
