I Need Help With Library Management

Hi, I’ve upgraded from KiCad 5 to 6 to 7 over the past few years. I haven’t done much work in the past 3 years. I’ve got an old Git file with some personal libraries on a remote drive that is associated with some projects I created 4 years ago. I need these.

I just tried creating a new symbol in a new project and an error pops up telling me “No Symbol Library Detected.” Well, how do I point to a symbol library or create one?

I found this, and it doesn’t appear that I have all of this stuff in my library when I click the ‘A’ button.

I used clone libraries, but can’t remember how. Also, I’ve completely forgotten how this insane file system works or how to modify it. HELP!

Hello @mlaflare
Try this from the FAQ at the top of this page.
It was written for Kicad 6, but not much has changed in this area for Kicad 7.

Thanks! Where can I find Texas Instruments libraries? I need all associated files for a LMR16020 and a TPA3118.

Google those part numbers should give you links to the data sheets.
