i have been unable to play with nightly until quite recently so i am a bit out of the loop.
I have read here on the forum that there now is a new measurement system that allows making good dimensioned drawings. I was quite hopeful that it could now fully replace the need to export the footprint to an external tool but well with sadness i have realized that this tool is not in the footprint editor (i mean yes the inspect tool is now more useful there as it also snaps to pad corners but if i find an error i still need to document it with a drawing so i sadly still need to use a different tool than the footprint editor).
I then tried to open a footprint in pcbnew but it seems snaping to pads is not really working in the same way as it does in the footprint editor (i can not get the measurement tool to snap to for example pad corners like i can within the footprint editor). Do i miss something or have i had my hopes too high?
If the kicad internal tools are not working for my needs is there now at least any way to get dxf of footprints including the pads exported (i seem to be blind here)
For reference the workflow i was hoping to replace Tutorial: How to check footprint correctness? (Workaround for missing features in KiCad V5 and earlier)
