I created a footprint in metric using a metric grid. The pads for the connections are imperial, though. The validator complains:
Violating F7.2 For through-hole components, footprint anchor is set on pad 1 Pad '1' not located at origin - Set origin to location of Pad '1'
As the part is metric, Pad 1 is not located on the grid and with “Place footprint reference anchor” I cannot hit Pad 1. I could not find a way to precisely place the reference anchor. Usually one can hit “e” and alter the “Position X” and “Position Y” value for precision placement. But that won’t work for the reference anchor.
How to place the reference anchor on Pad 1?
