No Design Rules Menu in MacOS


This question was ask before without resolution: PcbNew on macOS: Where is Design Rules menu?

I am running KiCAD 5.1.0 on MacOS 10.14.3. There is no menu selection to modify the Design Rules.

Any hints?

Where is the design rules editor?

2nd square icon…

Or, File/Board Setup


V5.1 reworked the user interface massively be prepared to completely relearn how to use kicad.


Thank you for the pointer.

I did not realize “Board Setup” was the new phrase for “Design Rules”.

All I could find in online help referred to Design Rules. I am back running!


@bvwj Don’t feel bad, I did not know where it was either. However, I did know that it had moved and that was enough for me to work out where it went to.
