Still learning Kicad 6 …
Am I correct in my thinking that Geographical annotation when used in the ‘PCB editor’ and then do ‘update from Schematic from PCB’ should keep all components and nets BUT just change the reference to that part in the schematic, or am I wrong ?
I have designed a schematic and then laid out a PCB from it.
When I was happy with the layout I noticed that the Part ID’s were not sequential across the board.
Below shows a small part of the PCB design.
Was out of sink
I then did a ‘Geographical annotation’ from menu, all completed OK.
Now In sink
I then ran ‘DRC control’ and no problems, i then enabled the 'Test for parity between PCB & Schematic ’
I then got lots of errors …
I did try ‘update from Schematic from PCB’ and then a 3 pin device in schematic was linked to a 4 pin in the PCB etc … all components were mismatched
What have I done wrong ?
