Re: broken eeschema


Wayne Stambaugh a écrit :


This doesn't make sense unless I do not understand how the library cache
works. Even if the library search order changed, the actual component
used in the schematic should be in the library cache which is always
loaded before any other libraries.

Well, the library cache contains all the components found in the schematic project. So if you run kicad and you have missing libraries , eeschema still displays your schematic, using the library cache. It is used just in case your lost usual libraries, or when you send your project to someone. But this library must be the last loaded library and must not be edited, because components are expected be found in usual libraries..
Why ?
because if it is the first, you cannot change an existing component in a library and see these changes in your schematic,
if the old one (in the cache) is used insteed
