New to Kicad, and trying to get to grips with assigning footprints to symbols.
If I right-click the symbol in EEschema and complete the “footprint” field, everything is OK.
If I select Tools->Assign Footprints, and select the footprint, I can’t seem to make anything happen.
Update PCB continues to give the “Cannot add U1 (no footprint assigned)” - I think I am missing some part of the process. Any clues?
BY the way: When I received the link to activate my account, my browser warns me:
“The link you just clicked seems to lead to another site than what the link text indicated. This is sometimes used for tracking whether you clicked the link, but it could also be a scam.
The link text indicated that the link would lead to forum.kicad.info, but it leads to mandrillapp.com.”
Should it do that?
