I am learning to use Kicad (I was using Protel98 during more of 22 years). It seems KiCad is wonderfuld, compared with the other old tool I was using.
When I pass a component from top (Front) side to bottom (Back) side, if the component is drawing vertically in the screen, the it makes what I expect (for example, let´s say a diode, with the pad 1 drawing up, and the pad, 2 down). When I flip the diode (with letter F), then the diode change to back side, and the pin 1 is drawing below of the pin 2.
But when the component is seeing in my screen horizontally in the Front side (let´s say, the diode pad 1 in the left and the pad 2 in the right), when I flip to back side, the pin 1 still is in the left and the pin 2 still is in the right… the only thing that change is the writting of the name of the component, that is seeing in mirror, when is the back side.
I have seen, Kicad has the option of watching the PCB from back (in view/flip board view), that it seems very good… but I don´t understand yet, why if the component is drawing in horizontal, when I change to back side, they don´t change the pads position…
Thank you very much.
