I’ve create a new template with the paper size A and a page layout description file to include the logo of my university. When I start a new project using my template, every parameters (paper size and logo) are fine. But when I insert a hierarchical sheet, the logo still appear but the paper size revert to A4. How to keep the A size paper parameter?
I set the paper size of an existing project to A1, then added an hierarchical sheet and it also defaults to A4.
From what I know such defaults are not read from some default template, but sort of hard coded in KiCad. So I don’t have a solution, but can confirm your problem.
I also would not know a good algorithm for the default size of a new sheet. There is no guarantee that a new hierarchical sheet should be the same size as the main sheet.
I just had a look at:
Paper size standards govern the size of sheets of paper used as writing paper, stationery, cards, and for some printed documents.
The ISO 216 standard, which includes the commonly used A4 size, is the international standard for paper size. It is used across the world except in North America and parts of Central and South America, where North American paper sizes such as "Letter" and "Legal" are used. The international standard for envelopes is the C series of ISO 269.
The international paper ...
And like the rest of this chaotic wold, it’s just a big mess and you have to find some method to make do with.
As a workaround you can put a hierarchical sheet to your template and set it to the paper size you want.
It’s also such a small thing. How often do you start a new project, and need an hierarchical sheet in it?
