Not sure this is a bug or something I’m doing wrong but I have many schematics I created in Ubuntu V18.04. Not long ago I moved (upgraded) to a new full copy of Ubuntu 20.04, and downloaded and installed a new copy of KiCAD.
Now when I open a schematic, everything is off grid. And checking the configuration, I don’t see any way to ‘adjust’ existing schematics to be on grid. As a result, I can’t edit the schematics by adding new parts or anything as nothing mates up when trying to route wires and the like.
When I try to open a project, it tells me that the project already exists and asks if I want to overwrite it? Why is it doing that?
The one time I went ahead and told it to overwrite, that’s when I get the schematic that is all off grid. There is a file ‘rescue-backup’…what is that? What needed rescuing? (The folder is empty, so I wonder why it was created).
What I did was C&P my KiCAD project folder to the new installation of Ubuntu 20.04. I have a KiCAD folder in ‘Home’ in Ubuntu, which is standard practice. Then installed KiCAD. When I try to open a schematic, what are all the errors about? I didn’t C&P any of the KiCAD software.
What do I look for or how do I handle this?
