Reverse view for second layer

Beitrag von devshibby » Sonntag 10. Februar 2013, 17:29

Hi,

I've had bad surprises on some of my PCBs with footprints that were upside-down due to misplacing on the second layer (the green one).
I think it would be useful to be able to view this side with horizontal mirroring, just like it's already displayed in the Photoview.

The board is always displayed from the top, and you look directly through the board. So, the bottom side is mirrored. This is the general kind of designing a board. If the bottom side were not mirrored, then the top side has to be mirrored. I think, this feature would not really help.

Well, I think it's better to work on an "unmirrored" side.
So the top side would only be mirrored when editing the bottom side. Then it would prevent inverting pins by mistake when routing the bottom side.
It looks like I'm the only one having this kind of issue :D
