Bug Description

I have noticed this started happening a few days ago.

When using the "Update PCB from schematic" button in pcbnew some changes to the schematic are not reflected until eeschema is closed. Closing eeschema and re-running the update-from-schematic will reflect all the changes.

Hi Oleg- Please add the version information for which this is happening. It may be a while before someone looks at it, at which point the "a few days ago" reference is hard to track down.

Also, is this the same as lp:1823177 ?

Sorry, I'm only using the nightly builds so I always forget to mention that I'm using the nightly builds on Ubuntu ;)

So, this started happening on the nightly builds sometime during this week. I guess it's related to the changes of the connectivity netlist thingy that's been going on.

Maybe it's related to lp:1823177 but for me, hitting the "update from schematic" button multiple times doesn't have any effect. Only closing eeschema will do the trick it seems.

@Oleg, please can you copy the exact version information from Help -> About KiCad -> Copy Version Info

This is probably because real time connectivity is currently disabled. I can put in a workaround.
