Ok. I just installed the latest version of KiCAD and its greatly better than the one I had. I should be able to get this without too much trouble. In particular, the wizarding features to be able to put out sample files is extremely helpful.

Hi Chris,

Here is the description of the KiCad footprint library organization:
http://docs.kicad-pcb.org/en/pcbnew.html#_managing_footprint_libraries_pretty_repositories


Please find my KiCad footprint library attached:
uploads/376/kicad.pretty.zip

Most of the footprint there are from the PCB Library Expert Pro 2015.20.
I have the Librarian feature and I was manually transferring values calculated by the Library Expert to KiCad footprint editor

The KiCad interface was added to V2016.01 and the beta version which is released to beta testers.

Library Expert Lite with the KiCad interface will be available late next week.
