Continuing discussion of the issue I’m having. See the previous thread here
Ok, installed a new nightly build - no change. Well some change, but the same result. There is no Rescue Helper dialog that used to pop up first, but I still get a bunch of warning messages in the remapping dialog. Not all of the symbols turn into squares with question mark either. One sheet got probably around 20% of missing symbols, the next one - 100%. If I open the schematic by canceling the remapping process - all symbols are there but they all are opened from the project cache. If I open it with remapping, the symbols that open properly are still opened from project cache. Those symbols still have the old names, not the names which the remapping dialog claimed it would be. In other words +5V is still +5V not +5V-RESCUE_Project_Name. Again, if I reinstall the old stable version, everything works just fine, all the symbols are present and are opened from the proper libraries (my local libraries). When I install the nightly - all goes haywire (not to use the m word again)
So based on that may be somebody can answer the following questions for me:
When you open an old schematic without remapping, is it expected behavior for the symbols to be opened from the project cache?
What exactly should be done with environmental variables? Should I just delete all of them and install stable version to get them back to the previous known state? I should be able to edit them directly from KiCad or no? My understanding is that if I go into library management and there all my local libraries are present, then the symbols should load from those libraries, regardless of other environmental variables… or I’m just being naive here.
Where do those new rescued symbols are supposed to be saved to?
