Probably not much difference, but may depend on whether a DIY or commercial PCB. Do you have a solderless breadboard? How easily does it fit?Unfortunately I dont. It's just some random slide switch I found. Does it make a (big) difference if it meassures 2.5 or 2.54 mm between the pins?
I actually tried to but I didnt succeed. It said I wasn't allowed to save in the library. I also couldnt create a new library.It is very simple to either make from scratch or simply make a new foot print from a copy of one that is close, just move or edit the pads etc.
I think many people routinely keep two or more libraries. At a minimum, you need your personal library and the one that comes with KiCad. Then when there are updates, there is no risk of losing all your work. I have some others in addition: Sparkfun has several. I saved the few of interest to me. Adafruit also has one, I believe. Probably more on GitHub.I actually tried to but I didnt succeed. It said I wasn't allowed to save in the library. I also couldnt create a new library.
There must be an extended library on the internet free to import.
