Nightly Build Symbol Error 74LS00

Notice a symbol error in the 6.99 nightly builds that is not in the stable 6.0.

74LS00, the half circle is mirrored horizontally:

Best would be to raise the issue on giblab. Or from KiCad. Help / Report Bug

You seem to have outdated libraries.
The problem lies in the library 74xx.kicad_sym (older version?)

(symbol "74LS00_1_1"
  (arc (start 0 -3.81) (end 0 3.81) (radius (at 0 0) (length 3.81) (angles -89.9 89.9))
    (stroke (width 0.254)) (fill (type background))

arc angle should be set 0 0 (-90 90 works as well)

after that change it’s all good :+1:

I double checked and this is only on the 6.99 library, there appear to be other instances where things are flipped 180… like hierarchical ports…. I open a schematic (made in v5) in 6.99 and they are flipped. There are other 74xxx parts with things flipped. Looks like I should report a bug.

In the library symbol folder alone are almost 1000 cases of 89.9 that should be 90 or 0

I think these were both fixed in the last two days. If you could check again on the next nightly that would be great.

(FWIW, now that I’ve replied I’ll get notified here so there’s no huge need for an issue on Gitlab. It’ll still help a bit with tracking, but :man_shrugging: )

I saw there’s an issue confirmed here:

Thanks Jeff,
appears all good again :+1:

I am still seeing it… Just downloaded installed the latest windows nightly

In V6, only the hierarchical port is flipped

In 6.99 hierarchical port and 74HC00 flipped

There are a bunch more fixes after your build. Let me know if it’s any better after tonight’s nightly gets built. (Or if you build your own anytime now is fine.)

Looks like the is has been corrected. Thanks!
