i noticed that it was taking quite some time to upload an archived project and found that .pdf files were being added.
okay, that was step one.
then I noticed that in every .zip archive, the file size for the pcb kept getting bigger and bigger.
i opened the “”.kicad_pcb file in a text editor and was a little surprised by what I found.
i have multiple entries for footprints that are no longer used as they have been updated by me for various different reasons.
everything seems to function fine, but this is a waste of hd space for no reason; even if the space is small. if every program did this it would be a problem.
any good/easy way to clean up my board file to only include the footprints currently being used?
