How to convert a schematic built into a PCB built on MacBook?


Im a newer user of KiCad and I’ve come to conclusion that I can’t figure out how to convert a schematic built into a PCB. The problem is the ‘‘Assign Footprints’’ feature, that doesn’t really seem to work on Mac. I can’t assign the footprints to convert it over to a NETLIST so I can create a PCB model of my built.

Does anyone have the same problem?
