When you create a schematic, you need to annotate it. If you have a few elements, it is easy to do it manually. For larger schematics, it is better to use automatic annotation. KiCad provides this capability using an easy to use interface.
- Select the “Tools” menu
- Click “Annotate Schematic…”
- When the window is opened you can change settings
- Click “Annotate”
When you open the KiCad “Annotate Schematic” window you have the options of selecting:
- Entire schematic or current page
- Order of components
- Type of numbering
- Reset or keep current annotation
In the window there is a message field where you can see information about the actions that are performed.
