Re: [eeschema/question] use mouse position instead of custom position for selecting objects?


>From a position of (mostly) ignorance, isn't the real question 

"how can things be off-grid in a system where all the coordinates are
expressed in whole numbers"?

I looked at the test file
c3b4f02bdb0a4e47a18a05c5dba187cb199.zip), changed the grid to 1 mill, and I
still can't get a wire to connect to the ends of the components (focusing
mainly on BBC - see attachments)

I can understand a situation where, for example, real number round results
in an issue but here were have a file where everything is expressed as an
integer, where the least significant digit corresponds to 1, the smallest
gird, and yet somehow the parts are "off-grid". That doesn't seem to be a
user error.

Subject: [Kicad-developers] [eeschema/question] use mouse position instead
of custom position for selecting objects?

Hi all,

In the thread [1] on the forum, someone is having hard time trying to edit a
schematic with off-grid wires. Does anyone here remember if older versions
of Kicad used the mouse or cursor position for grabbing objects? Is there a
chance there's a regression in V5/V5.1? If so, I'm willing to fix this.
Editing a schematic with non-aligned pins is now next to impossible...
