Re: Footprints: *.cmp and *.net stored footprints are not symetric


Sure that is a solution for me, but not a solution for a production software.
(Other users will be confused, that's why I report that bug)

Delete .cmp and skip doing CvPCB was work great for me given all Footprint in your schematic are all good. I only used CvPCB to verify that but not generate .cmp at all. Go straight to pcbnew.

    I have the following issue:
    Assigning new footprints and exporting the netlist does not touch
    CvPCB. Deleting the component file (*.cmp) fixes the issue.
    Can please fix it that way, that the components are updated when
    exporting to CvPCB?
    (It may be that CvPCB only reads the *.cmp stuff - didn't not
    checked that issue) but in my eye it should prefer the newer file

    Also importing to PCBNEW has a issue: Importing from the component
    file works, but using the netlist still uses the old components,
    others then assigned in CvPCB.
    The issue is that CvPCB does only update the components, not the
    netlist file. (Checked with editor). It would be great if both
    files are updated.

    Please give me feedback, when this issue is fixed.
