I am trying to make a minor change in an existing schematic for an existing board.
The change I made was to remove a pull-up resistor, everything else remained the same.
Now, after DRC, footprint assignment,
and netlist generation in EEschema, when I try to update the layout in PCBnew I get the following message: Quote"
Error: Symbol C1 pad 2 not found in footprint. Capacitor-THT: C_Disc_D3.0mm_W1.6mm_P2.50mm
The strange thing is that:
a. Both the capacitor symbol and the footprint are from Kicad libraries
b. There are more than 10 capacitors with the same symbol and footprint, but the error is reported for capacitor C1 only. Reversing the change didn’t make any difference.
The error message screenshot and KiCad version info files are attached herewith.
What could be the possible cause for the error? Has the Kicad library become somehow corrupted?
But then why is the error message only for one capacitor?
Kindly advice. iF additional project files are needed, please let me know.
Thanks for your help in advance.
