I was editing pad numbers on a custom footprint, when I clicked on a pad and pressed ‘e’. Instead of opening the properties window, as is normal, I get this:
I click ‘No’, and get this:
At this point, when I click ‘No’, I see another error about IsDrawing(). I think that’s a .NET reference. So I assume there will be many more errors, so I attempt to continue, ignoring the popup. None of the action buttons work. So, I save the footprint, then open the popup window. this time, I click ‘Yes’. Cursor changes to ‘Busy’ and program is forcefully closed by Windows after about five seconds.
Upon reopening KiCAD, it functions normally. How can this be avoided in the future?
