I’m trying to import a DXF of a component footprint. In this case, I’m just trying to test out kicad, I realise that I could just draw this by hand.
It imports fine in the footprint editor, but when I select an object and right click->Create pad from selected shapes, I get the following error:
“Cannot convert items to a custom-shaped pad: unable to determine the anchor point position. Consider adding a small anchor pad to the selection and try again.”
This DXF works perfectly in diptrace, so I’m not sure what I am doing wrong here. Could someone please point me in the right direction?
Here is the DXF file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/483cc5ompe3khns/PCM12SMTR.dxf?dl=0
I’m using the latest nightly build: 5.0.0-rc2-dev-707-g2ed24a4
