I’m working on a refresh of the KiCad user manual for the upcoming 6.0 release. I’ve started with the PCB Editor, where I’ve documented some of the new features and changed behaviors, but there’s a long list of topics that need to be covered.
What I wonder is: what topics are you most curious to read about in the user manual? Are there things that have been added in 5.99, or even things that already existed, that you’d like a better reference manual about? Your replies will help me prioritize what parts I work on documenting.
Note that I already have on my to-do list the following documentation topics:
- Library management and best practices
- Net classes
- Grids and snapping
- Net ties
- Length tuning
Also: additional help writing the manual is welcome. If you feel like this is something that you would be good at, please DM me or email email@example.com and we can talk details.
