I am pushing edge-cuts for the board outline
On this board outline, I am trying to place a part (USB Connector) whose footprint also has some partial drawn edge-cuts.
I placed this part as best as I could on the PCB outline so the Edge.Cuts overlap, and the error I get is “Board Outline is missing or malformed”
I can edit one or the other to fix this, but I am wondering what the best procedure is when the part I am placing has it’s own Edge.Cuts.

- Other relevant thread I read:Footprints with PCB Cutouts . I was wondering if anything is new with Kicad 6 since this was posted.
- The highlighted line from “Datasheet” what I draw as a open contour on the footprint.
I hereby certify that I am not simply asking someone else to design a footprint for me.
This is an auto-generated message that is in place on the “footprints” section of the KiCad.info forum. If I remove it and ask for a footprint to be designed anyway, I understand that I will be subject to forum members telling me to go design my own footprint or referring me to a 3rd party footprint site.
