I'm new to KiCad and I'm trying to simulate a simple circuit:

enter image description here

This works fine. The simulation tool works, and if I generate the netlist for spice and can see no problem:

enter image description here

Works like a charm. But now I try to edit the voltage model, just like this:

enter image description here

Now the simulation fails, and if I generate the netlist I can see that it is wrong! The voltage source is not connected as in the schematic:

enter image description here

The Net-_R1-Pad2_0 is missing! Am I doing something wrong?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @JonRB I thought other people might have this same question. It is not straight forward to know whether this is a bug or if the user is doing something wrong. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @JonRB This q&a section has a tag for program specific questions. This will naturally lead to users making support questions here. Which can include bugs as well as misunderstandings. So either remove all program specific questions or accept that such questions will come from time to time. (pointing to the forum is however valid as it is faster to get answers there in most cases.) \$\endgroup\$ Commented Apr 22, 2019 at 14:40
