Kicad export capability?

does kicad output an ascii compatible schematic file?

I believe that ALL of the KiCAD files are in human-readable ASCII form. Open them up in “Notepad++” ( ) or your favorite text editor and have a look.

You can find information about the syntax of these file formats by going to “Help” > “Documentation” > “File Formats” ( ) from the KiCAD home page ( ).
