Using my Windows 10 64b platform I am unable to open a PCB file
created by a friend who uses a Linux>Obuntu>Mint 64b platform. We are
both running the most resent stable release of Kicad (4.0.6). I get a parse
error that refers to line 193 offset 6 which is a blank LF line. It refers to line
193 which follows a net_class Default statement block. The message
suggests I need to update my Kicad version however my version is the most
recent stable version.
I am able to open the Kicad example project pcb files OK which
suggest there is a subtle difference within the pcb file generated by the
Linux build of Kicad.
I would like to attach the pcb file but as a new user I am blocked
here for doing that on this forum. I have inserted the file header as text
below which may provide a clue.
Please provide me some clues towards fixing this - thanks in advance!
