Hey all. I’m using Kicad 6, just upgraded from 5. I’m sure it’s going to be super awesome once I get it figured out but at the moment I’m very frustrated!!
I can’t seem to simply copy/paste a symbol, let’s say a resistor, that’s already in the schematic. I did RTFM (although maybe I’m just dumb…) . In Kicad 5 I used to simply hover over a symbol and press ‘C’. That worked well enough.
I noticed that the ‘C’ hotkey was no longer set to copy, so I changed it back to copy, still doesn’t work.
The manual also says I can hold shift/left click a component to copy. Not working either.
I can use ctrl c/ctrl v but there must be a quicker way. What am I missing?
edit I just noticed there’s a hotkey for “Duplicate selected schematic symbol” instead of copy that I should have assigned C to. Thinking that would clearly solve my issue, I changed it. Still not working!!!
Also version 6 manual says ‘C’ is assigned to that command by default, which it was not on my system.
