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.
I am making a footprint with a metric grid (2.5mm). When I place the first pad, it is off grid.
How can I move a pad on grid? (i.e. to the nearest grid point). Why is there no (AFAIK) menu entry to move a pad on grid? Why do I have to fiddle with snapping?
Same for moving a component on grid (when designing a PCB). Why is there no menu entry for moving component(s) on grid? (i.e. move pin 1 of the component on grid, the rest may be still off grid).
Any suggestions? TIA
