KiCad 5.1.2-1 , Windows 7
In my first project (finished and Gerber files sent), I started creating symbols by using “Symbol Editor”.
Every time I defined a new library, I was asked to select “Global” or “Project”; I selected “Global” always.
Before starting my second project I would like knowing:
Why are the new/user global libraries placed in the project folder/directory?
I mean; I thought that the “Project” ones only will be found in the project folder (I say this though I didn’t create yet a project library). And, in case of the user “Global” ones, the user could be asked, likely once, to choose/create his global libraries directory.
Doesn’t this imply that the user cannot create two libraries, “Global” and “Project”, having the same name?
