Ah, I was using it wrong. I was looking for someway to start a new lib, not realising I need to start a new footprint and then start a new lib from that. Thanks and sorry for that. Although, would be nice to be able to start a new footprint in a new lib directly when opening the footprint editor, I will add that as a wishlist, i noticed some of my friends
did the same when trying to create a new lib.

The other part doesnt work for me though. I have set a path called SHARED that points to "/home/krille/projects/kicad_libs". I then use the wizard to add the lib located at

expected outcome is that the library path will become "${SHARED}/footprints/antennas.pretty"

outcome is that the library path become "/home/krille/projects/kicad_libs/footprints/antennas.pretty"

So it was a while since I made some noise, so its time again.

Is there a way to create new footprint libs from KiCad? I cannot find it,
right now I create them by mkdir name.pretty, thento be able to add them
with the wizard, I have to create a temp.kicad_mod file in that folder.

Should this be considered a bug, and if so, would it go into v5? I would
like to be able to add/create empty libs, and then populate them all from within
In footprint library, the third tool.
(Tooltip: Create new lib and save current footprint)

I also noticed that the wizard does not autoreplace the paths with the 
paths in kicad the same way that the symbol library editor does. Should this 
be considered a bug and would a fix be accepted in v5?

It works for me.
