A few days ago I put a 4066 in a schematic. (2018-05-13 according to file date).
Today I opened the schematic and I got the dreaded “project rescue helper” popup.
My KiCad V4.0.6 on my linux box is probably still configured to pull the lib’s from github.
(Have to change that some day…)
Search for the differences:
If I click “cancel” the 4066 grows bigger and does not fit anymore between it’s connection points.
If I click “OK” the resque lib is created with my old symbols.
I do not like it much when library symbols become bigger. I like small symbols.
Only relevant part I could find in the KLC was the length of the pins, and they were 100mil in the cached part which conform to the KLC. The new “libary” part has 200mil long pins, which extend into the symbol body.
I do not like it that the outside of the pin connections change with no apparent sensible reason.
I wonder sometimes how many of all those symbols are generated by schripts, and how many by human hands * mouse manipulation…
