I am trying to copy componnets from one sheet into another. For this I create a new sheet, and save it as something. Then I append the old components which I need to copy. However , after closing and opening, the data is not there any more. WHat am I doing wrong?
There is a small glitch in the stable release: it does not realise that the sheet has been modified by the action of appending. So the file is not always saved when you close the project.
Follow these steps:
- Append to your sheet as you tried.
- Move any component so that KiCad knows there have been changes
- Save the sheet
- Close the project
- Open the project
And that should do it
Ah, okay. That helps. Thanks
