It does support back annotations if we are speaking of the same thing. I migrated from gEDA to KiCAD in a week btw, and all eagle libraries can be converted to KiCAD (I have a huge collection of such libraries, downloaded from somewhere) but I often prefer to make my own as I need them, since anyway it is often the best practice to check all dimensions, pinouts and so on before sending files to PCB farm. I think eagle libraries are tested and perfect, but why would I risk? Frank Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2017-02-14 17:00:02
