Hello, apologies if this has been covered, I have searched but found nothing.
I’ve been using a KiCAD version from 2013 for a number of years. During this time I (ignorantly) never made use of KiCADs project manager. I just opened my files within eeschema and pcbnew, the version of KiCAD I was using allowed this and cross referencing worked fine.
Now…I’ve bought a new computer and installed KiCad 4.0.4 but can’t really open any of my old schematics and PCBs, because they’re not organised as projects it would seem. This new version of KiCad doesn’t allow opening of files straight from eeschema and pcbnew, unless I open the programs separately, which will be a bit of a farce.
Is there a way to prepare all my old files so that they will open properly with the new version of KiCAD? Going through and making them into projects I guess would be the way to do it but not sure how to do that, if indeed it is the best way?
Any help appreciated, many thanks.
