HAS to use power symbols from
power.lib - the same lib under a different name will not work.
Obviously yes, because this is a shortcut to this library
You can select the power device by entering its name followed by
'Enter', but it will never let you
place it with a left click.
This works well for me !
There is a place in 'onleftclick. cpp' that is hardcoded for 'power'.
It has always been my practice to use my own libraries so that when an
upgrade comes along, nothing
I can select the same power symbol with the "select the component"
icon and search and place it -
perhaps eeschema should not let this happen?
What is the problem ?

What do you handle the libraries priority ?

This is not a kicad problem.
