I am truly mystified -
I want to create a hierarchical set of schematics from a schematic I originally created in KiCad 5.1.9 and migrated to KiCad 6.0.9 using Windows 10.
I opened the schematic in V6.0.9, copied a circuit block and opened a new project called test. In Eeschema, on the blank ‘parent sheet’ I selected ‘add sheet’ in the ‘place’ pull-down menu (or icon or ‘s’) and created a box labeled ‘Power Switch’. I then went to that sheet (2) and I pasted the copied sub-circuit there in the middle. I then placed a second box on the root sheet called DC-DC- Converter. Going to sheet 3 I find that it’s identical to sheet 2 (except that it shows 3/3), with sheet 2’s circuit on it. When I move the (‘Power Switch’) circuit that appears there, it also moves the circuit identically on sheet 2. I’ve tried several times originally starting out with a less simplified set of circuits and pages, always showing the same behavior of simply duplicating the first circuit on all of the pages.
On another point: In the document “Schematic Editor/Hierarchical schematics” It says - ‘The Sheet Properties dialog can be accessed at any time by selecting a sheet and using the E hotkey, or with Properties… in the right-click context menu.’ I can only get to the ‘properties’ of the sheet by right-clicking in the drawn sheet box on the root sheet - I can’t get there by right-clicking in the sheet itself or by the ‘E’ hotkey.
Anybody know what I’m doing wrong?
