Components cloned in all hierarchical sheets

Hi, i’m new to kicad, previusly was on EasyEDA.
I’m trying to manage the sheets with hierarchical sheets but when i copy or add a component to one sheet it gets cloned to all sheets, same thing if i delete it, it get deleted from all sheets.

Is this an issue or i am just noob?

Did you change the reference designators in each sheet to be unique in the project? See the docs here: Schematic Editor | 7.0 | English | Documentation | KiCad and there should be demo projects you can look at from Open Demo Project.

Hi, yes the reference designators are unique to each component in each project

Found the issue, i had the same sheetfile for all the sheets
thank you

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
The intention of using multiple instances of the same sheet is to duplicate a part of a circuit multiple times. For example a BLDC motor controller, which has three output stages that are all the same.

This also works in combination with the Replicate Layout plugin to replicate the layout :slight_smile: on the PCB.
