How to Add new schematics sheet in KiCAD

July 27th, 2015

If you are working on a large project, you need to have multiple sheets on the Schematics. We will show you how to add multiple pages in Schematics in the free EDA tool - KiCAD.

If you come from OrCAD Schematics background, you know that it is possible to create multiple sheets with or without Hierarchical blocks. In KiCAD, multiple sheets connect only through the hierarchical blocks, and there is no way, as far as I know , to connect the multiple sheets of schematics using something like "off page" connector.

So let us say your schematics has two sheets - call them page1.sch and page2.sch. You first create a top page that has hierarchical blocks pointing to the two schematics page. You then interconnect the two hierarchical block.
