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:
- where it cloned the repo
- 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.
