Thanks for enduring our new user questions. I’ve spent a few hours learning KiCad after giving up on several alternatives. The big challenges for me have always been component creation. At this point, I’m only concerned about the schematic symbols. Footprints will come later. I’m using Windows.
My current challenge is to create a part in the library that is comprised of two other parts already in my custom library. I can open the first part to modify and save as a new part, but I don’t know how to import or cut and paste the second element of the new part. That is, I’m creating a photoresistor comprised of an LED and a photocell, which is represented by my squiggly resistor symbol. The LED symbol is open, but I don’t want to recreate the resistor symbol. What’s the best way to get the (squiggly) resistor symbol there?
There are more questions. Should I start a new thread for each one, or can I just append the additional questions to this one?
