Re: New border/title blocks?


In 5.1.5_2, on Windows, I don't see these new page layouts. So at least in
Windows this wasn't packaged. I don't know about other OSes.

Perhaps there's a way to make this more obvious so that when new page
layouts are available all packagers are aware? The discussion above reads
to me like the KiCad project has no control over this and my expectation
would be that page layouts, templates, and other "extras" that are in the
official repos would be included and consistent in all KiCad installs
across all OSes.

Nick, is packaging Windows your domain? Is there any way I could help to
get them included in an updated 5.1.5 release or 5.1.6? I know the GitLab
stuff is taking a lot of time from everybody but I don't want to let this
wither away.
