Hello, @jmk ! Good evening!
I finally figured out how to find the “New Component” Icon in KiCad 6.0! It really doesn’t have a “New Component” Icon on KiCad 6.0 but in order to create a custom schematic or add a new, custom component, these are the steps.
To create a new component which is a custom schematic in KiCad 6.0:
Step 1: Press the Op - Amp looking icon as shown in Picture 1:
Step 2: Create a brand - new library as shown in Picture 2:
Step 3: Choose the “Global” Library table as shown in Picture 3:
Step 4: Put your custom schematic on the folder where you will put your custom schematic. This folder will serve as your library. You have created this library folder before adding this custom schematic as shown in Picture 4:
Step 5: Now you can see your custom schematic on the libraries on the left side as shown in Picture 5:
Step 6: To create a real custom schematic, we’ll just put anything we wish, like a rectangle with some pins on it just like in Picture 6. The steps in creating the actual custom schematic is beyond this part, but here it is I made earlier, the MYCONN3 custom schematic diagram:
Step 7: This brand new component/custom schematic can now be added as shown in Picture 7:
This is how we add a new customized component without the “New Component” Icon on KiCad 6.0.
Thank you for the help!..
