However, what has this to do with using kicad? Can you explain?
Thank you for your replay:
KiCad is an open source software suite for electronic design automation (EDA). It facilitates the design of schematics for electronic circuits and their conversion to PCBs (printed circuit board) design.
Kicad creates and uses files of several different formats.
I was going to use the Terminal to cut and pasted some of the files.
From what you toled me I then found a download PDF book on terminal commands only 500 or 600 pages LOL that will shout me up for a time!!!!!
I then found a lot of updates & fixes for Kicad. I will have to do that and start again LOL.
