I hereby certify that I am not simply asking someone else to design a footprint for me.
My current version of KiCad is (5.1.9)-1
Hi, I’ve been using a 2012 version of KiCad and finally decided to upgrade to 5.1.9 because of access to all the new symbols and footprints available. Everything is going great until I try to create a new footprint. Since most symbols and footprints are variations of existing ones, I am used to:
- selecting an active library,
- loading a module (now footprint)
- selecting another active library, usually my custom collection
- saving the footprint into the active library.
First I looked in the manual - the menus don’t match and according to search results the manual is out of date.
I look in the forums. my first search results describe this same process, but then I notice that that was for older versions of KiCad.
I try the tutorials and focus on those for version 5.1. No joy!
Can someone please tell me how to do this specific 5-step process with the current version, or point me to the correct post?
Kind regards, Jurgen
