"Footprint Mode" in pcbnew



On macOS Catalina, and Kicad 5.1.6.

The pcbnew documentation (section 3.14) refers to something called “footprint mode” which allows, among other things, a sort of auto-place feature. Its icon is a six-pin DIP IC. with the direction/movement cross on it.

It is supposed to be on the top toolbar but isn’t.

I mailed in an issue to gitlab about this.
