Steps I took that resulted in the problem:
I used the command
fritzing -kicad . inside of a KiCad part folder
What I expected should have happened instead:
It produces an empty SVG. I was expecting an SVG footprint that I could use to make a part.
My version of Fritzing and my operating system:
fritzing 0.9.4 and MacOS Big Sur on an Apple M1 chip
