DTU: Align objects in Schematic Editor
« on: March 31, 2020, 01:17:59 pm »
Hi,

I'm Doing the Unthinkable (DTU) and trying KiCad for a design whilst in lock down (previously a DipTrace fan-boy)...

If it's OK I will post features that I miss along the way and hopefully I will be told that they are in KiCad and it's just I haven't found them yet....

#1 Alignment on Schematic

Is it possible to select a number of components and align them (horizontal or vertical alignment) left, centre, right?  And even better to be able to distribute them (vertically or horizontally)?

Thanks in advance

No not possible. You can check the bugtracker (gitlab) if this is already requested. If it is you can upvote the request or also add your comment if you feel the report is missing detail. If there is no request than make one but remember you need to sell you idea to the devs

One thing I do like about KiCad is the files are pretty readable.... so I could script a few of the bulk changes... it's a workaround.... not nice but a workaround.
