Layers Manager

gerbview_layer_manager_png

The Layers Manager controls and displays visibility of all layers. An arrow indicates the active layer, and each layer can be shown or hidden with the checkboxes.

Mouse button assignments:

  • Left click: select the active layer

  • Right click: show/hide/sort layers options

  • Middle click or double click (on color swatch): select the layer color

The Layers tab allows you to control the visibility and color of all loaded Gerber and drill layers. The Items tab allows you to control the color and display of the grid, D Codes, and negative objects.

  • Export to PCB Editor is a limited capability to export Gerber files into a KiCad PCB. The final result depends on what features of the RS-274X format are used in the original Gerber files: rasterized items cannot be converted (typically negative objects), flashed items are converted to vias, lines are converted to track segments (or graphic lines for non-copper layers).

Tools menu

gerbview_tools_menu_png
  • List DCodes shows the D Code information for all layers.

  • Show Source displays the Gerber file contents of the active layer in a text editor.

  • Measure Tool allows measuring the distance between two points.

  • Clear Current Layer erases the contents of the active layer.

Printing

To print layers, use the print_button_png icon or the File → Print menu.

Be sure items are inside the printable area. Use sheetset_png to select a suitable page format.

Note that many photoplotters support a large plottable area, much bigger than the page sizes used by most printers. Moving the entire layer set may be required.
