Pcbnew: Add Footprint Libraries Wizard

version 4.0.4

When running the Add Footprint Libraries Wizard, what is the purpose of:

  • selecting the Github source
  • saving a local copy

Will I need to tell KiCad to look in two places:

  1. where it cloned the repo
  2. AND my local copy?

Will the Github source automatically keep itself at the latest while my local copy I can add to and edit?

If you do “save as local copy” KiCad pulls a zip file from github and unzips it locally. It does not create a local git clone, nor does it update automatically.

The local copy will only get updated when the user chooses to do so.

Thanks both of you for confirming.
