I’m super happy that Version 5.0 is out, however, it seems to have some teething problems, at least with my install.
Upon the first use of the program, I foolishly selected Graphics Acceleration, thinking that my i7 Laptop would be OK. Now, when I open KiCad, I often get an error for wxWidgets. This can be triggered in PCB New by accessing the Tools menu particularly. I have since uninstalled and re-installed, hoping it would give me the graphics option again but sadly not. Is there anywhere I can set this manually?
Upon opening PCB designs from v4.0.7, the top layer copper pour covers the component silk screens and pads etc. Can I get back to the v4.0.7 type display so that I can work with both top and bottom pours with silk screen on top? I haven’t had a chance to try a new board yet to see if it is a ‘feature’)
Many thanks for any help.
