Yes, I have read your reply. However, I read and reacted to the mail from eelik, before I opened the mail from you.
Now, I know there will be a KiCAD version 5 in a couple of months and that the nightly build does not have the issue with a hanging crosshair. That is promising.
I used to use the hobby version of EAGLE. I paid about € 75 every two to three years when they came out with a major upgrade. Unfortunately, EAGLE does not offer a hobby license anymore. Someone recommended me to try KiCAD and I am in the learning phase. Most likely, I will leave it until the version 5 is released. I have tried a nightly build, but the libraries are not included, and I do not want to go through the hassle of finding out where to download them from and how to install them. I am not doing that kind of stuff regularly, so it is a major task for me to figure out exactly how to.
I realize, you and others are spending your spare time on KiCAD and make it available free to people like me. Thank you, that is very nice of you.
