About the new Pl_Editor tool.
I released the first draft of Pl_Editor, a new tool to create customized
Some features are still missing (like hot keys and undo/redo commands)
but it should be very usable.
The documentation is also released. Please read it.
I need volunteers to test it.
I need mainly GOST users to create a GOST title block (with an English
version to test it).
I am thinking most of features needed by GOST title blocks are existing,
but let me know if something is missing to create GOST title blocks.
I want (in the *very* next future) to remove all GOST conditional
compilation in Kicad core code, because currently there are only 2
specific GOST feature:
- The first (parts id notation) is now available as config option in
Eeschema (with more than only GOST notation).
- The second is the GOST title block. The code relative to GOST title
block is *very poor* and not maintainable, and not compatible with the
title block editor, and the new customizable title block mechanism is by
far more powerful.
I am thinking GOST title block is just a customized title block, like
many other title blocks used in many companies, and therefore does not
need a specific code inside Kicad.
Thanks for your help.
