I am a Kicad newby. I created my first component for my first schematic in Kicad. The component works ok but something is goofy with it.
First of all, when I view the component in the Component Browser, it is small. There is a lot of “white space” around it. It does not fill the browser screen. Of course, I can zoom in to see it better, but if I select the zoom auto button it zooms out again.
Secondly, when I insert it into a schematic, it seems like the large amount of “white space” around the component causes a problem. If I try to erase another component that is a couple inches away from the component I created, the schematic editor asks which component I am trying to delete. It should be obvious, I did not click on my new component, I clicked on another component.
Is it possible I placed some sort of invisible thing in my component that causes it to be bigger than it appears to be? If so, how do I find and delete this thing?
