Reading Netlist In PCBNew

I have the start of a new design in PCBNew with the rat's nest 
showing.  I made some changes to the schematic and created a new 
netlist in Eeschema.  In PCBNew I performed a netlist read but the 
nets in the rat's nest did not change.  I verified that the changes 
had occurred properly in the netlist.  The signals on the pads in 
PCBNew did not change.  Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong in the 
netlist read operation in PCBNew?

Hi Fred,
 
Try the compile button, 2 below the read netlist button.

Re: Reading Netlist In PCBNew

Hi Derek,

Thanks for your response.  I had tried the "Compile" button earlier 
but just to make sure I tried it again.  It made no difference in 
the assignments to the original assignments that were made to the 
component pads.  These assignments were made when I first created 
the design and nothing seems to change them.

By the way, what is the function of the "Compile" button in 
the "Read Netlist" dialog box?

Re: Re: Reading Netlist In PCBNew

Hi Fred,
 
I think that the compile refreshes the "ratsnest" connections.
I have changed my schematics and the changes reflect so this does work.
1) Change schemetic.
2) (Re) Generate netlist in schematic.
3) Add components if required.
4) Read netlist in pcbnew.
 
If I re-route with DRC OFF then sometimes connections are not seen.  Then press "compile"
 
If component has duplicate pin numbers then pcbnew gets confused. 
 
Regards
Derek

Re: Reading Netlist In PCBNew

Hi Derek,

I finally did get my "Netlist Read" operation to work.  I set the 
Module Selection to "Timestamp", the Bad Tracks Deletion 
to "Delete", and the Exchange Module to "Change" all at the same 
time.  I then clicked the "Read" button and then the "Compile" 
button.  When the "Compile" button was clicked the rat's nest showed 
the changes that were made to the schematic.  I now get all of my 
nets in the rat's nest.  From there I could finally start laying 
traces into my PCB layout.

I don't know which of the changes made it work but once it worked I 
wasn't too interested in experimenting to find out which one did the 
trick.  Maybe later.

Thanks for your help.

Fred

CHM Files

Hi,

when trying to get help in the kicad programms,
I get errors about the missing help files.
Looking through the doc directory I found chm
files pointing to seperate zip files?
Are there anywhere, or how to create, complete 
compiled chm files without zip references?
Hmm, maybe I didn't run the MS HTML-Help compiler correct.
Regards,
Joerg

Gerber to .brd

Hello,

I wanted to ask you if is possible to convert from a Gerber file to a .brd
file, in order to make little modifications.

Thank you
