I added a hierarchical sheet to my schematic which was a file copied from another schematic.
Some, but not all, of the symbols have anomalous reference designators, for example:
I can edit this reference to R?; but, when I duplicate this symbol, the new symbol has the same “NOTFOUND” reference.
- What caused this?
- Can I correct this?
- Is this going to cause any problems later on with annotation, layout, BOM creation, etc?
What is your kicad version?
Version: (5.0.0), release build
libcurl/7.54.1 OpenSSL/1.0.2l zlib/1.2.11 libssh2/1.8.0 nghttp2/1.23.1 librtmp/2.3
Platform: Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit edition, 64 bit, Little endian, wxMSW
wxWidgets: 3.0.3 (wchar_t,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)
OpenCASCADE Community Edition: 6.8.0
Compiler: GCC 7.1.0 with C++ ABI 1011
FYI, after doing various things: saving, closing schema, annotating, etc. Duplicating the the symbol no longer gives the “NOTFOUND” reference.
5.0.0 is already quite outdated (And has a lot of bugs that are fixed in newer versions). The 5.0 series no longer receives updates (And even so you should at least be on 5.0.2!)
I suggest updating to 5.1.4 (warning user interface changes quite a bit but the underlying data structure is fully compatible)
