[SOLVED] Deleting Library


#1

New to Kicad and am messing around with creating a new library. I’ve managed to create a test library and would like to remove it. I thought if I delete the filename it would disappear from the list.

When loading up symbol library editor it correctly complained that it could not find the filename (Error only popped up once), however in my list of symbols I can still see the test library.

How do I remove this? Right clicking and there is no option to delete?

Running KiCad 5.0.2 on Debian

Update: Scratch that. There is a manage symbol libraries under preferences. I’ve removed it there and its fixed the issue.

You need to remove the library from the library table. This is done using the library manager (found in the preferences menu of symbol or footprint editor deepening on if you want to delete a symbol or footprint lib)

Removing the lib from the library table will not remove it from your file system. You would need to do that using a file browser.
