Kicad Documentation and User Submissions

  1. It is now necessary to add a Power Flag to indicate to KiCad that power comes in from somewhere. Press the a key, select List All, double click on the power library and search for PWR_FLAG. Place two of them. Connect them to a GND pin and to VCC as shown below.

Now that I understand the need for the PWR_FLAG I know that the above is MISSLEADING.

Reading that the first time around has caused a significant portion of my initial confusion.

I believe that I can write-up a much more logical presentation of this feature.

I think I’ve convinced myself to just-do-it and post the results here for feedback.

Comments welcome!
