I just installed KiCAD 6 and started a new project. I’ve used Eagle for 20+ years and wanted to move to either EasyEDA or KiCAD, and settled on KiCAD (didn’t care for EasyEDA).
So all is well, until I wanted to add symbol and footprint for an ESP32 DEVKIT V1 module. No problem adding the library, but there’s no option in the Preferences menu for managing footprints.
I don’t have
Manage footprint libraries
After extensive searching, seems everywhere I read, that option should be there and expected by default, so I can’t find a solution to my dilemma where it’s simply AWOL. What am I missing?
Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?
