i am doing the first board with “Application: kicad Version: (5.0.0), release build” and noticed that i (now?) can move even Pads of Footprint, by highlighting the pad and than entering the coordinate after pressing “e”. I did this several times before i noticed that i actually move the pad itsself and not the whole footprint.
This seems odd, can i stop PCBnew from even offering changes to Footprints when not in the Footprint editor, or at least somehow “lock” it? I fear a careless move could change a footprint without me noticing it.
In the v4.7 i believe there was also a mode which locked the footprint designators and so on to its position relative to the footprint, i cant find that button anymore (if it ever existed), is it gone?
Thanks in advance
