I like to have two instances of the footprint editor running, so I can copy a part of a footprint to another footprint. (That actually works. Well, sort of.)
The way I launch two instances is by launching PcbNew first and then closing it. Twice.
This would indicate that the footprint editor is a separate application, consistent with Kicad architecture, But Windows insists it is still a PcbNew process and I can’t find it as an application in the Kicad bin folder.
Is the footprint editor a separate application that can be launched directly?
