Hello i use KiCad 4 months now and find it a real modern hi-end CAD system,
but i think that the component and footprint databases are not
coressponding to the hi-end soul of Kicad.
It is obvious that we cant have all the component and footprints present
, but i would like to start a discussion

For example, my design has mixed analog and digital 3.3 Volt circuits.
My digital circuits are in one sheet, and my analog circuits are in
another sheet, all tied together into a hierarchy.
I've created a hierarchical schematic layout and have used the 3.3V
and GND power components for the power on each page. When I export to

Yes they are global i think
look at this

(2 VDD )
(3 MCLK_1 )
this is part of netlist
VSS and VDD are global labels and the MCLK is local label on page 1
Good luck ;)
sorry this was the original message i wrote the first time

Hi 2 all ,
I have the following idea for very useful KiCad new function :
A netlist select function . It will do the following :
When pin or label is selected with this function it will go to the
netlist file and finds the net name this pin or label is associated with

Yep the ruler is

I can't find -VCC in Powers.
Can I make one somehow?
Please do not ;)
The opposite of Vcc is not -Vcc . It is Vee !
-Vcc is used for

I am using Kicad for almost a year now and i have some questions about

And also what is the anneal file.
10X in advance
I would like to know if there is a way for composite pads creation. For
example a copper pad assembled from few copper pads and solder paste
pad , that differs from the copper one. For example a power pad witch
solder paste is divided in four equal parts and a solder mask pad wich
Yes it is possible. Just look how opamp symbols are made in Kicad. I
think that it is possible to split the part on A B C D subparts. I would
use double page size but split the part is a good idea too. Remember to
override the automatic part annotation for this part only so you keep it
I am not sure that this is possible. Vias and through hole components
have pad for every layer. Try to edit the files with a Gerber editor and
trim the pads . Could you send a visual representation of the DRC ? Most
likely you will have to rework the problem zones.
