I’m working on a design that means moving display items around. In this case, the PcbNew Layout is more important than the Escheema layout. The goal is use KiCad to represent the final layout before drawing the items on the schematic.
The biggest issue I had was that Hierarchical Sheets do not all Annotate the same way; and I think this might be a bug.
My design has 6 sheets at the moment. I changed up the priority of the RefDes on the PcbLayout; so that they would not move with an “update Pcb” click.
I think I should be able to Globally reset every RefDes in Escheema; it seemed to work once.
Anyways, the point is that I don’t want to have a RefDes of “101”, “201”, … “601” just because I duplicated the same part 6 times; a RefDes of just “1” to “6” works for me just fine.
Tonight I spent way more time then I feel I should have while working a design with KiCad.
