I am on the mission to find a EDA software that is not remarkably clumsy to use. I am still a bit in shock about Eagles UI. I have been using Upverter for a bit, but it seems to be abandoned.
So now I try KiCad. I am following this tutorial on Adding a new Symbol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8ppC2kvo80
I already fail at Minute 1 of a 5 Minute tutorial. In my MacOS version (10.15.3) running KiCad 5.1.5 the symbols in the top left are not there. however I found a matching entry in the File menu for “New Library”, the dialog matches despite the OS mismatch. However, when I press Save, the dialog greys out. If I tab in and out of KiCad the dialog is back active, but even if I just pressed cancel it would grey out again, here’s a screenshot of how this looks like: https://imgur.com/a/M6x7uDd
edit: the issue is that saving fails, kicad is unresponsive and needs a restart. there is no error message, only the dialog changes as shown in the screenshot.
