Been Using Kicad as an undergraduate student for well for 2 years now and this is the first time I’ve encountered a problem like this.
Whenever I try to add a footprint using the footprint editor I just can’t seem to be able to select it.
The result is the same in the footprint editor as well.
After noticing this I opened one of my previous projects and found out that everything works fine there. The problem only persists in my current project.
I hereby certify that I am not simply asking someone else to design a footprint for me.
This is an auto-generated message that is in place on the “footprints” section of the KiCad.info forum. If I remove it and ask for a footprint to be designed anyway, I understand that I will be subject to forum members telling me to go design my own footprint or referring me to a 3rd party footprint site.
