Re: Current Variant Support Implementation Too Basic

Please stop this. You know this is a waste of time without some form of project management and have said so. Things that need to be done are not, push and shove, pad stacks, flex PCB, and many others. A simple fix would be enabling git, add a revision control system or as I do now which allows branc...

I don't use mirroring since all my final work is checked at the Gerber level since that is what the board is made from.

Re: Library Location

Re: Library Location

Tomg reply is the only way to fix this 'missing tool' issue, very time consuming and boring. If you have to do this at least setup a system that by-passes the absolute embedded path issues and address a couple of other issues. Depending on your system: C: drive 970 Pro Nvme m.2 D: drive terabyte har...
