Hello, I have just created a logo to use in KiCad according to this tutorial: https://www.re-innovation.co.uk/docs/adding-logo-to-kicad/ which produces a .mod (legacy) type file.
I created a folder for it called AD_logo on C drive, and copied the download to it (12KB).
I then tried to add it to the library by adding the folder and changing the type from KiCad to legacy in Manage Footprint Libraries. It then tries to load but gives the message:
12:27:56: Failed to open ‘C:\KK_AD_mod\modules\AD_logo’ for reading (error 5: access is denied.)
12:27:56: Failed to retrieve file times for ‘C:\KK_AD_mod\modules\AD_logo’ (error 5: access is denied.)
Everything looks OK, exactly as it did in V4.X.X when the library would be saveable as a .pretty file.
Is it possible to do this in V5.1.0?
Unfortunately these appears to be no easy way to scale logos with the bitmap2component converter, and the drawings I have of a company logo as dfx or bmp are far too large to use, hence the conversion.
