I'm don't think I changed anything relating to whether the layer is
visible or not. (I thought you implied that I had). A lot of PCB actions
have the "visible only" idiom, and I'm not sure what I think here.

Even if we perform the selection on non-visible items (which might be OK
IMO), almost all actions which operate on selected objects only do so on
visible layers.

If you get a chance, try my "for_master" branch, as I would appreciate
some testing of the split-colouring changes there. It affects the "F"
action, and Auto-enforce DRC rules mode.

Now you mentioned Ctrl+F in the 2011 post you linked to, you have
reminded me that I will need to test that and see how it works (and
think how it _should_ work), with the split-colouring changes.


Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
