Kicad 7 pcb grid issues

  • 2

Having an issue with the grid settings in Kicad 7 pcb editor. No matter what I change the grid properties to, the remain at 2.54 mm (0.1″) Any idea what’s going on?

I’m trying to create a replacement pcb for an old Teac R2R preamp board that is no longer available, and need to duplicate the original dimensions. As part of that I also need to create an 18 contact 3.96mm spacing card edge connector, but that’s another issue….

  1. That’s kind of strange, never faced issue similar to this. It could be a bug so try to check if you face similar issue on different projects.

    But just to clarify, if you are using the Grid settings :

    You have to manually select the Grid under the top tool bar well.


    For the 18 contact edge connector, create a custom footprint using array tool: Youtube Video

    Start with creating a PAD of required dimension -> select and right click on the PAD -> Create from Selection -> Create array

    And then use the footprint within the PCB editor.

    I hope this helps.
