How to copy a schematic between projects


#1

I don’t find a way to simply copy a schematic from and old project to a new one. But it seems a workaround exists.

Tried to follow but I found problems:

  1. searching for schematic to append KiCad don’t see *.sch file. I have to manually copy the whole path
  2. “old” schematic is immediately copied in new schematic, sometime over the existing one. No way to copy and paste
  3. simbols coming from my libraries are substituted for that coming from "official libraries

#2

For kicad v4 stable:
Either make sure your symbols are named uniquely over all libs or make sure your own libs have a higher priority than the symbols of other libs.

This is one of the problems solved by the symbol library table stuff that is already in the nightly version
