I have created and placed footprints inside three “local” libraries, by selecting the option: “for this project only”. So I have three local Libraries, one for each project, like: Lib-1 for project-1, Lib-2 for project-2 & Lib-3 for project-3.
Now, if I start a 4th. new project, the Lib-1, or Lib-2, or Lib-3 won’t show up, unless I start this 4th. new project inside one of these old folders, then still, only one Lib. will show up.
I once tried to select the option: “github library” in place of “for this project only”, but then error started coming up in the search path showing my local library name in that error. So I want to avoid adding or changing the default library.
How to copy footprints from one of my local library to another?
(if I can do that, it will serve my purpose well for now, till I get to learn more).
Or, how to make all my three local libraries common to any new project?
I am using KiCad 4:0.6. Kindly help.
