I recently downloaded KiCAD 5.1.7 on my Macbook Pro and started following a tutorial on YouTube. When I got to footprint editor to learn how to create a footprint, I tried opening the footprint editor. It loads all the footprints and opens with a white screen in the center with the basic libraries and commands on each side. However for some reason, it shows all the footprint libraries already available with footprints in them but it will not show any of the actual footprints in the center screen, even after double clicking on them. Then I checked my application folder and saw that Footprint editor application did not come with the download. I am not sure if that is the problem.
I tried redownloading KiCAD (now 5.1.8) and still the same issue. I would appreciate any help on this issue and would like to get it resolved.
