I spent about two hours trying to figure out how to rip up traces, watching Youtube videos, looking at websites that didn't match my vesion of KiCad.
I even BUILT THE DAMN THING FROM SOURCE and I just could NOT figure out where the damn ripup tool was!!!
Then, about 15 minutes into a Youtube video, there, right in the middle of everything, was......
(you hit the delete key to ripup. There's no graphical deal or pull-down menu item!)
So, I feel like a complete dunce, but I got some things done.
I built a schematic of one flipflop.
I added footprints to the schematic.
A created a PCB.
I moved parts around to get the best layout I could.
I'll look at it a bit more again and then I think I can start soldering flip flops together and it'll go pretty smoothly.
I'll add the kicad files wherever I can find to add them. ;-)
