Old .mod files to newer type


#1

Hi everyone.

In a previous version (or maybe life) I have successfully changed pre-V4 modules in a folder to V4 modules in a folder(.pretty suffix). I downloaded a .mod file for a connector, put it in a folder in the library location and added the library to the files using the footprint libraries Wizard.

Shut down and re-started KiCad and it it there in the Footprint libraries manager table (and the fp_lib_table file) as a legacy library folder.

When I try to open the library in footprint editor it is not in the list, so I cannot save the library in the new format.

I am sure that this worked in V 4.06 but in V4.07 it appears not to work. Have I forgotten a step or has the method of adding files changed?

Any ideas?

Eventually managed to get it to work. No idea why the legacy library did not show in the list.
Wierd.
