I have a question about assigning footprints in schematic editor. I am using the nightlies from the Dec. 22nd 2016 or something like that.
What do I put in the footprint field in the component edit window because I tried “DIP-8” quotes excluded, but the CvPcb did not match that with any of the footprints in the Housings_DIP library, I also tried “DIP-8” and Housings_DIP:DIP-8, nothing seems to work when I want the footprints to be associated automatically.
In CvPcb, it lists components by id, however when I made the schematic, I checked digikey to see which footprint was available for which component and now the only want it seems that I can correlate CvPcb and eeschema is by part id, there has got to be a better way? Do I need to assign footprints in each component in eeschema for it to work, give an example of 0805 that would work so that I only am presented with 0805 type footprints in CvPcb whether it’s for hand soldering, or etc.
