Realigning Schematic to Grid

This has been asked before but I cannot find the answer.
I am on 6.01 and I want to realign, completely, all my components and wires to the grid. I thought I had done this in the past but cannot find it now-
thanks
Fritz

Start by updating to KiCad V6.0.6 (Or V6.0.7 probably next week).
I find it quite strange people do not update with the bug-fix releases. You can read about the changes in:

To align with the grid:

  1. First set the grid in your KiCad version to 50mil.
  2. Select everything by zooming out and dragging a box around your whole schematic.
  3. Right click and select “Align Elements to Grid” from the popup menu.

With Linux it auto updates when you have configured the repo. With Windows I imagine it’s a manual update.
Maybe we need a flashing icon somewhere on the main screen to report there is a new version otherwise you won’t know unless you go looking.

Thanks Paul-I never would have guessed! I remembered the right click but thought it was global without the selection.

Regarding upgrading I usually do it for bug fixes but have not done this one yet (been outta here a lot during the parts shortage!). I am on windows and as gmc states there is no warning.

Thanks–your instructions worked fine
