Hey Chris, in the "Creating A New Library And Footprint" video, I noticed at 0:48 you already have the 7555 chip in the Pcbnew viewer. I don't remember you going over how to load that or generate it in this part of Kicad. Can you go over that?
Never mind. I noticed in the next video, you went over it. I suggest switching the order of the two for clarity's sake. Thank you. You do a fantastic job with these videos.
