Some minor issues

Hi. Thanks for creating this tool - it's been really useful. However ... as you asked for us to highlight *any* problems ( :p ) ... here's a few nit-picks from how trying to script for it has gone so far: - No option for -outname for cutout; seems to default to fixed <objectname>_cutout - No "all drills" option for milldrill - for command-line/script, means have to know/preprocess externally to identify drills to add to command, else fails with timeout waiting for drills to be selected - scale fails with certain object names (?) e.g. on "Drill" fails, but ok on "Drill01" - command-line scale effects not updated in graphical view, but gui testing shows scaling has actually occurred - No option to exit / kill FlatCAM when script finished? Potentially really annoying if multiple files to be processed. - Command-line loses focus after every command. Annoying when trying to enter multiple commands.

Agree with the command line loosing focus as being *very* annoying. I would also like to be able to *see* which holes are related to the chosen drill/drills while processing excellon files.
