I have a few issues with drawing origins in Kicad.
By pressing the space bar, it’s possible to change the origin, which is very handy. However, after pressing the space bar, if I try to edit the coordinates of any components, they are related to the origin of the drawing area, which is the top left corner.
Let’s suppose I want to design a board that can be plugged onto a Raspberry PI. In this case, it would be very handy if I could for instance set the origin at the bottom left corner, and then be allowed to get all the coordinates accurately from there. For instance, I could edit the position of the bottom-left hole and set it to (3.5, 3.5) to position the hole exactly. Then, to setup the second hole, I could set the origin at the center of the first hole, and set the coordinates of the second one to (0, 49), etc…
Is there a way to do that?
Is there a way to invert y to have it upwards?
Is there a global setting of the origin, other than the top left corner of the PCB drawing sheet, so that
all the coordinates are changed accordingly?
Thanks for any hint!
