I have a PCB design that needs some minor changes. Mainly graphics and via tenting. No problem there.
I wanted change a test pad size. In schematic mode, I go to footprint assign. There was an error when it opened. I do not remember what it was. I re-opened it and it appeared to work. Without making any changes, I did an Apply Save and Continue. I save Netlist in schematic mode.
Back to PCB I try to load PCB NetList. I get the following:
Error: Symbol U1 pad ~ not found in footprint MyFeet:FFC24B.
It is listed 7 times for each FFC24B.
In home page, I went to symbol and footprint editor.
All pads appear to be numbered. This component has 25 pins. 24 pins plus 4 chassis grounds. The chassis grounds are all labelled 25 as they should.
I restart KiCAD
In schematic, I try to reassign footprints. I get the following when the page starts:
Footprint library path “F:/PrinterCircuit/2020-03-04_22-49-52/footprints.pretty” does not exist
A similar file/folder “F:/PrinterCircuit/2020-03-04_22-49-52plug” does exist. What is this file and why was it created? How do I fix this?
The folder I created in March looks like:
