Hi all, I am trying to place a few SMD LEDs on a (somehow) banana-shaped PCB. For reference, I have imported a DXF file into the user.drawings. The LEDs should be placed and rotated according to this plan (tangential to curved shape).
EDIT: As of summer 2022, there is no interactive arbitrary rotation command as known from print / screen design layout apps. I did it the hard way.
In my home world (Illustrator et al.) I can just rotate any element interactively so that I can see the rotated shape in real time:
Is it possible to rotate the respective footprint in the same manner in KiCad?
Or would I measure all rotation angles and then enter these into the properties dialog by hand? If possible, I’d like to avoid.
