I couldn’t find reference to this anywhere, so maybe it’s just me.
We’ve created a custom Page Layout Description File (a .kicad_wks file) using pl_editor and it’s working well for our schematics. Now we want to do the same for our PCBs. I can’t see any reason why we wouldn’t just use the same layout, so I’ve selected the same .kicad_wks in pcbnew’s Page Layout dialog.
Everything looks fine (except our logo, which I should swap for the dark background version) except where we successfully used %F to get the filename in Eeschema, appears blank in pcbnew.
- Is the %F format symbol not supported in pcbnew?
- Do people tend to have a different page layout for their PCBs compared to their SCHs?
