Re: [N8VEM-S100:4568] KiCad or ??

The "stable" Windows Binary linked on the KiCad site is BZR4022 from July 2013.

I think we'd need to get the newer branch built to use this.

You guys must be far better than me at Routing.  I had the hardest time just pushing & shoving a few traces on the 68K board.    In the end I just deleted the trace and let the xxx program redo it.

In KiCad how do you move a via.  If I select one,  it moves one side but I cannot connect the other side back to the original trace.  Seem you cannot connect a via to a dead end trace.


For complex boards I think it would be difficult for most of us to hand do them.  Does anybody know if the KiCad writers are going to enlarge the KiCad program to auto-route like DipTrace etc.

Manual routing just got a whole lot better thanks to CERN. Check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCG4daPvuVI

This will make your manual routing issues (dragging vias, for instance) much easier to deal with.

Are you in fact running the latest version of KiCad?
