I am new to using KiCAD v5 released but am experienced with other pcbCAD programs. I’m using Win10 OS.
I am struggling with some peculiarities in laying out and deleting schematic wires. I’m running into cases where I cannot seem to select a wire. In the snapshot below I am trying to straighten out the wire VCCIO (left side of the drawing). When I right click on the on the box at the left end of the wire I do not get any menu items about moving, dragging, or deleting this wire. Instead, I get the right-click drop-down menu shown on the right. There are other similar times when I want to drag or delete a wire that I cannot get functions no matter where I click on the wire. I can do a selection box around the wire and then delete it, however.
Am I missing some concept here and don’t understand this or what? Thanks for any help or clues on making this easier.
Yes, don’t change the grid once a schematic has been started. But also, you should probably really stick to the default 50 mil grid. The libraries have pins located on a 100 mil grid, so if you change your grid to something that doesn’t divide 100 evenly, you won’t be able to use the standard symbols. This is a very common problem that comes up on the forum a lot.
