You da man,
Thanks for extending a helping hand.
I loaded the schematic OK now.
I note that an improvement is possible. After clicking "Remap Symbols", my *.pro file is
stripped of old library information
*and is saved to disk*
before I subsequently am given a choice to "Save" or "Close" in the next part of the Remap
Symbols dialog activity sequence.
I would prefer that the modification of the *.pro file (on disk) only happen if I "Save".
Because during multiple failed attempts, one has to revert to the original old-school
library laden *.pro file to try again.
This process is a bridge, it gets crossed, after which you don't need it again until
another project. Sometimes these bridges can be put into special one-shot operated
*external* tools where they stay safe from code churn aka evolution.
In this case, it was my bad, the older *.pro got edited probably by a text editor
somewhere along the way. Or I tried to use the newer one *.pro file with the old *.sch.
My thanks to the team again.
