I’m a newbie to KiCAD but used other systems before. I tried googling but did not find any help yet:
I created a very simple dummy project containing some C, R, D that are connected but don’t form any useful circuit, it is just for testing. I assigned footprints to the single parts and these are also available in the schematic again.
I then created a setlist and examining this in a text editor looks fine, parts, names, footprints are all contained.
When I start PCBnew then I get an empty sheet, there are not parts, no footprint is visible, nothing.
This behavior is different to what I’ve seen in tutorials, as I see it the footprints should be directly visible. I’m stuck here and don’t really know how to proceed. It must be some really easy beginners mistake as it seems nobody else has this problem.
I don’t get any error message shown.
I run standard KiCAD 4.0.7 on a Mac (all other PCs busy at the moment).
It would be great if anybody could give me a hint here.
Thanks for any hints,
