Hi all: I’ve been using KiCad 4.0.4 for a couple years now and doing my first KiCad 5 project using V5.1.4 under Windows 10. All has been going well with schematic capture until I got to assigning footprints. Very weirdly, the filter by number of pins isn’t working for any library symbols! If I select filter by # of pins, all library symbols disappear, leaving only symbols in my personal library with matching pin counts. With the pins filter off, library symbols are all there. I haven’t (knowingly) messed with any defaults except adding my personal library. I did start with an imported V4.0.4 schematic, so feared it is something from there, but as an experiment I created a schematic from scratch and still get the same issue.
There are some posts about this issue, but they are back in early '18 for what looks like beta builds. Something this fundamental can’t be universally broken, so know it is something unique to me. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I looked and can’t see any references to this issue outside the above obsolete threads.
