BOM tool on OSX


#1

I’m trying to use the the kicad 5.0 BOM tool under schematic capture on OSX. I get the following “warning”

Failed to open file “/private/var/folders/5_/clx856ds5kj671mdblz0sx8w0000gn/T/AppTranslocation/4876AFD7-ABAA-41AC-AE82-35DC7CC8329E/d/kicad.app/Contents/SharedSupport/plugins/bom_csv_grouped_by_value.py”

Is there a directory setting somewhere that needs to be changed? I’ve have had trouble with the upgrade (clean install) from Kicad 4 leaving settings behind.

Not really. What does your command look like for this plugin?

I got it to work by deleting the plugin and adding the same one back. That seem to change the directory (it is still a strange location) but now appears to work.
