Re: odd place for a via

This is not frequent effect, but it happens sometimes. You will not spend a lot of time if you correct it manually.

Re: RefDes on assembly layer

You can copy silkscreen to assembly layer but not vise versa. If you want to get RefDes on assy layers only, you should place them as single text.

Re: Make rounded rectangle shape (do nets make it into gerbe

There is not information about nets in Gerber files. Probably PCB manufacturers use advanced CAM software, that allows to import netlist (or ASCII data) together with Gerber files and analize connections.

Re: How to add a same page reference

Page connectors used for connecting busses on different sheets only. If you want to connect pins without wires, create short wire from pin, rename it and right click on the wire and select "Hide wire" in submenu.

Re: Pseudo 2-lead component that has a trace between pads

If two pads connected together on layout, they will be joined in the same net. This seems logically.

Re: View shape size when selected

When you create a shape, you can use grid to define shape size. Cursor coordinates are always shown on lower right side of window. Based on this information, you can define shape size as you want.
