Re: Back annotate references from PCB
I thought that was part of the connectivity stuff that Jon was working on
(it certainly wasn't me, and I don't know if there is another Ian
contributing code right now). I remember seeing some email threads on
real-time updates to the information in Eeschema.
The wishlist item that Wayne mentioned is . Brian filed that a while ago
because he had created a tool to do the back annotation based on the
geography of the board. I don't know where he is with porting it into the
KiCad codebase right now, but you should definitely reach out to him and
coordinate work so that you don't duplicate effort.
