Working on a large project with 2000+ components, but really only 60 different parts. Therefore, I thought a .equ file might be a good way of getting all footprints associated quickly. I setup up the .equ file
that is attached (new users can't attach files):
After importing it an clicking the 'Automatically associate footprints button in CVPcb, all components up to the last appearance of '74AHC1G86SE-7' are replaced with that footprint 1800 components!
Am I doing something wrong? Is this feature just currently bugged?
I also considered setting the footprints in the component properties in the library. However, these do not seem to 'Push' forward into EEschema.
I am at a loss of what to do! My last ditch attempt would be writing a small script that goes into the schematic and just manually sets all the footprints. However, I am not 100% sure on where this is stored! Also, if I do this is there anything I should be aware of to do?
Thank you for your help!
