Lines from dxf imported footprint

Hello everyone,

I’m into Kicad since 2 days and so far I love it!

I’m creating a new footprint and I’ve imported the outline using a dxf from autocad.

If I select one of these I dont see the little squares at the line extremes to adjust it, also right clicking on it I dont see Properties

It seems the lines are not imported as lines… Am I correct? Is there a way to solve this?


You’ve been upgraded to ‘basic’ so that you can perhaps post a picture of what you are seeing. Also, what version of Kicad are you using and on what operating system?

Here I’ve selected one of the imported lines, but there are no handles to adjust it.

And this is what I see if, line selected, I right click (normally with lines I see “Properties…”)

I think it was an exporting issue.
I tried using dxf(2003) and it worked.

It stills import with some errors (arcs and lines here and there…) but they are easly corrected now that there are handles
