I inadvertently locked a small segment of a trace. Not I cannot seem to unlock it.
To unlock a regular component I select it in the schematic then unlock it in the pcb editor. I’ve tried to select different traces on the schematic but no go.
What might I be missing?
In the bottom right of the PCB editor window, there are a series of check boxes labeled “Selection Filter”. If you check the box for “Locked Items” you should be able to select your locked segment.
Thanks, I had to select locked items and tracks. You are a life saver
I ran into the same problem when I locked a track and this is a much nicer way of solving this than what I did to get rid of it (I used a text editor to remove ‘locked’ from the segment declaration in the .pcb file).
Somehow I managed to never notice the bottom right selection filter settings as I always used the right-click-select. I learn something new every time I use this great product. Time for another donation!
Yeah, the developers are really sneaky about hiding so much stuff in plain view.
I remember when first using Kicad, it was weeks before I noticed all the information across the screen under the work space.
Those are in a grey area.
Maybe grey to you, but could just as easily been on the back of the monitor, for all the notice I took at the time.
