I’m still in my first schematic. I am using a STM32F769, QFP version (208 pins).
What I would like to do right now is to check how it goes on the PCB. I have basically
the chip and the power capacitors, and also a few settings (e.g. the Boot0 pin).
In order to check the ERC, I’m trying to set all the other pins to non connected.
But: setting one single pin to non connected takes about 1 minute until the blue cross
is drawn (with the mac’s spinning beach ball). Is this normal?
Just for info: my schematic is hierarchical. I have started drawing the blocks, there will be
15 blocks, and right now only one block has a real schematic, the CPU block.
Just in case, I have shutdown everything, restarted, and now I’m using only Kicad and mail.
There shouldn’t be memory issues. It’s still the same. With this pace, it will take half a day
to set no connect flags. Am I missing something?
As for the environment: MacOS, the latest version. Kicad 4.0.7. Memory 8GB. Absolutely
no CPU power issues when running some similar software like Eagle.
