It is unclear what you are complaining about this time.

I run ERC. It updates the list of issues, then the window is closed all of the sudden going to a another schematic sheet and focusing a random place.

It has to remain in the schematic sheet I am currently on, with the zoom level I am using focusing the place I am. Also the ERC window has to remian open.

Now that I don’t have issue, it is working fine. The window remains open when the ERC finishes and the view does not change.

But when I have ERC issues it does that annoying thing that does not help anything to fix Issues.

Now, IF I click an item on that list, THEN it has to change the schematic page and focus to show where the issue is. NOT when it just updates the ERC list.

There was a bug-report for this topic on gitlab which is already fixed. (Eeschema ERC dialog closed after doing ERC [GTK-specific?] (#14538) · Issues · KiCad / KiCad Source Code / kicad · GitLab)

Wait 1…5 days and check the upcoming version 7.0.4
