Reported problems and fix status


  1. Version 1.32. Page 42 has a list of three items (Breadboard_5V_power_supply.KiCad_pcb etc.) but you still refer to these list as "...two new files". Obviously the .pro file was already there, but then do not list all three here. Status: Fixed
  2. Version 1.32. Page 42 on the bottom: "... The last of the three files," this is the first file of the list. Why mentioning that this is the last Status: Fixed
  3. Version 1.32. Page 43 -This is not an error but more a recommendation-, you refer to more information in the KiCad documentation, but the reference to this is unfortunately not there. This would be really helpful to specifically mention the source to this here. Status: Fixed
  4. Version 1.32. Page 59 has a wrong reference to an image. Status: Fixed
  5. Version 1.32. Page 63 Chapter "Graphics line tool" should be fourth instead of third in the second sentence "It is the third one from the bottom, labeled ’17’ in Figure 8.14." Status: Fixed
  6. Version 1.32. Page 63 Chapter "Graphics line tool" is mixing left-clicking and right-clicking and should instead mention double clicking for marking the end. (Or use context menu and describe then accordingly.) Status: Fixed
  7. Version 1.32. Page 64 on Figure 8.34 has two different software versions, without any explanation which is which and why this is showed like this. I think it was forgotten to remove the older layout. Status: Fixed
  8. Version 1.32. Page 65 text under table 8.3 has an error: The last one is 21 (and not 20 for Cbpcb) for Cvpcb, similar to what the table shows. Status: Fixed
  9. Version 1.32. Page 69 Reference to figure 8.40 is wrong. Status: Rejected Response: V5 toolbar seems correct with the existing descriptions.
  10. Version 1.32. Page 73 refers to unknown image 8.? Status: Fixed
  11. Version 1.32. Page 79 I would rewrite to: "The first thing to notice is that these menus contain items that are partially also available as buttons in the top or right toolbar:". To me the sentence "Take a minute to see how the first group of menus have a one-to-one correspondence with the buttons in the top and right toolbars." does not make much sense. Status: Fixed
  12. Version 1.32. Page 84 "it uses the same template." The template was never described before. So it is not possible to use that. Status: Fixed
  13. Version 1.32. Page 86 Pan does not work with the Alt/Cmd + Right mouse button (RMB) on my PC. I do not know if this is specific to my configuration or mouse (Using Ubuntu with a logitech G5 mouse). Status: Pending further testing Response: This configuration works on my Vmware Ubuntu virtual machine. It seems to be configured at the OS/VM level, not in KiCad.
  14. Version 1.32. Page 89 change sentence to: "If you right-click on a track, you will get the context menu in Figure 9.11." (Change also for the image description). Status: Fixed
  15. Version 1.32. Page 90 change sentence to: "Finally, if you right-click in an empty area of the sheet, you will get the context menu in Figure 9.12.". Status: Fixed
  16. Version 1.32. Page 90 wrong reference to Figure 9.13 Status: Fixed
  17. Version 1.32. Page 91 table 9.1: The G-Hotkey has disappeared in the current release of KiCad. I recommend to completely remove that row from the table. Status: Pending further testing Response: At the time of this writing, the Drag feature is not working as expected; instead it operates as a regular Move.
  18. Version 1.32. Page 91 wrong reference to Figure 9.15 Status: Fixed
  19. Version 1.32. Page 94 There is no number 18 at the left toolbar. The last button in that Figure 9.16 is 16 Status: Fixed
  20. Version 1.32. Page 97 Rephrase sentence to "The two footprints should be attached to your mouse pointer. " Status: Fixed
  21. Version 1.32. Page 147. Incorrect reference to Figure 9.113. Status: Fixed

  23. Version 1.32. Page 284. Incorrect reference to Figure 19.12. Status: Fixed
  24. Version 1.32. Page 305. Incorrect reference to Figure 21.1. Status: Fixed
  25. Version 1.32. Page 354. Incorrect reference to Figure 35.5. Status: Fixed
  26. Version 1.34. Page 110. Reference is made to net with "GND1", but in the left bottom image it shows GND2 -> Correct to GND2. Status: Fixed
  27. Version 1.34. Page 117: Missing reference to figure 9.39 for buttons "6" and "7". Status: Fixed
  28. Version 1.34. Page 119: Sentence: "a rectangular PCB with two flaps in the sides where we can place two holes for the mounting screws". I do not see any flaps on any of the figures. This is confusing for me. Status: Fixed
  29. Version 1.34. Page 122: Reference to "The arrows in Figure 9.64", where I do not see any arrows in that figure. Please add arrows accordingly. Status: Fixed
  30. Version 1.34. Page 123: Small typo: PCB instead of PDB. Status: Fixed
  31. Version 1.34. Page 133: Top sentence: "The toolbar version also has a second tab, titled Render" -> The title is incorrect. At figure 9.89 the second tab is called "Items" rather than "Render". Please also correct this in the figure description and the sentence immediately following the figure. Finally, there is also the sentence "Experiment with some of the other options in the Render tab,...", where I would call it Item tab instead. Status: Fixed
  32. Version 1.34. Page 135: Two sentences above figure 9.93, where it is explained how the first group of menus have a one-to-one correspondence, I find confusing. I do not see that correspondence, or if any, I would only see a partial correspondence. Status: Fixed
  33. Version 1.34. Page 147: Removed mentions to Cairo and OpenGL graphics engines. Status: Fixed
  34. Version 1.34. Page 147: Reference to figure 9.112 is wrong (See first sentence in paragraph Route.) Status: Fixed
  35. Version 1.35. Page 12: the company Digi-Key Electronics is accidentally spelled Digit-Key Electronics. Status: Fixed
  36. Version 1.35. Page 142: Incorrect description of the contents and figure number of Figure 9.104. Status: Fixed
  37. Version 1.35. Page 142: Figure 9.104 has a slightly different view (This is really minor), which are the buttons with <<< and >>>. In your figure it has some text. At version 5.0.1, I do not see any text there. Status: Fixed
  38. Version 1.35. Page 143: Figure 9.105 has the same buttons slightly differently organized. Status: Fixed
  39. Version 1.35. Page 146: There is a reference to Figure 9.109. This figure however shows another menu item, not the contents of the Local Clearance and Settings tab. Status: Fixed
  40. Version 1.35. Page 146: At paragraph "Place" it shows a wrong Reference with Dollar sign. (Should be 9.111). Status: Fixed
  41. Version 1.35. Page 147: You describe the OpenGL and Cairo engines. Would it be possible to write a little bit more about this, or refer to some chapter -if there is-? Status: Rejected.Response: This was fixed in a previous version.
  42. Version 1.35. Page 147: Point "1. Single Track" is already described with the exact same sentence a few lines earlier. Maybe you can rewrite/remove some of the few lines before point 1 to make it fit better to the 5 points. Status: Fixed
  43. Version 1.35. Page 147: Reference to current version 4.0.7 can be updated to the current version. Status: Fixed
  44. Version 1.35. Page 149: Figure 9.115 looks different: Two items are not in the current version. And the current option with text "Optimize pad connections" is not shown either. Status: Fixed
  45. Version 1.35. Page 150: * Page 148 small typo: "...redefine one a segment..." -> "...redefine a segment...". Status: Fixed
  46. Version 1.35. Page 151. small typo: "...buttons n the top and right toolbar..." -> "...buttons in the top and right toolbars...". Status: Fixed
  47. Version 1.35. Page 153: small typo: "...to the schematic after you being work in Pcbnew..."? Is this correct English? Status: Fixed. Response: Should be "begin".
  48. Version 1.35. Page 156: small typo: "...is store is individual files..." -> "...is stored as individual files...". Status: Fixed.
  49. Version 1.35. Page 38: the reference at page 38 to figure 7.1 In the text it states "... as you can see in 1." -> please correct to "... as you can see in Figure 7.1." Status: Fixed.
  50. Version 1.35. Page 149: Confusing description about the use of "G" hotkey (at least to me). You describe here the two options for the mouse: "interactive drag" and "move". The hotkey G is therefore not relevant, as it works regardless of the configured option. So the options for the mouse only apply when clicking on a track directly, without using a hotkey at all. Status: Fixed. Response: It is true that you can simply click to select a track, and then click and drag. But the G hotkey still works as a shortcut.
  51. Version 1.35. generally as a remark for every other hyperlink, maybe add hyperlinks as footnotes as well at each page, so it is possible to read where it is linked to, at least for printed paper versions. Status: Pending. Response: Good idea. I will look at making this change ASAP.
  52. Version 1.35. Page 11: "that I have no intention in converting into PCBs." supposed to be "that I have no intention in converting into PCBs.". Status: Fixed.

  58. Version 1.36. Page 184. 182 - First paragraph, please provide a positive argument for Kicad. The argument that you provide is neither positive, nor negative. I recommend to mention for example something like: "Forcing oneself to work in a more consistent work which leads to less errors".. Status: Fixed. Response: I added text to better explain the issue, and the shortcut.

  64. Version 1.36. Page 188. Recommend to add footnote to PCBWay's URL + date? Status: Fixed. Response: Added URL and last access date to URLs in this page. Will do so for all other URLs in later versions.
  65. Version 1.36. Page192. Either missing figure 14.9 or 14.10 or reference is missing or what? Please correct also the references to it. The way it is now is confusing. Status: Fixed.Response: Incorrectly encoded Figure references.
  66. Version 1.36. Page 194. Question: Sentence "For larger boards, Kicad includes a basic autorouter..." Is this still true for V5.0?. Status: Fixed. Response: No, the autorouter can be installed as an ad-on. I have adjusted the text to explain this.
  67. Version 1.36. Page 195. Is the term "thermals" the most common one, or is it thermal relief? Please refer to the most common term if necessary. (Term is used 4x on this page.). Status: Fixed.
