I am discussing the now closed topic: ErrType(3): Pin connected to some others pins but no pin to drive it
The battery-LED circuit at the top is supposed to not generate ERC errors. However, if I create it in KiCad 5.0.2, I do get errors, namely: ErrType(3): Pin connected …
Upon inspection with the Symbol Library Editor, I find that in KiCad 5.0.2, the pins of the battery symbol are passive instead of Power output as depicted in the aforementioned topic.
Why has the pin type for the battery symbol been changed?
Now I need to add the PWR_FLAG symbol to the schematic, to +3.3V, and to GND. This seems superfluous, but it’s necessary to avoid ERC errors.
Furthermore what I find confusing: +3.3V and GND are also power flags. So I need to add a power flag to a power flag to make it be a proper power flag.
