Moving components on PCB


#1

Hi,

So I have completed my PCB it’s a basic 2 layer board. I am using Version 4.0.7 and while the board is finished in the respect that all connections are made there are a few areas that I look at and think I want to move around to give me more efficient routing.

Here is my problem, if I try and move a component on my pcb the connections to the traces don’t follow. Is there a way of moving a component and the traces moving with it? Like on Eeshema where you can drag instead of move?

Thanks in advance

There’s a very limited “drag” feature in the 4.0.7 Default canvas. Usually it doesn’t do any good. Unfortunately there’s no real draggin even in nightly builds. This may change in the future: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1743099.
