Buttons on board worn down?

It has been getting increasingly difficult to hit the buttons on my board to flash a new config onto it. I can’t seem to get it done at all.

You don’t need to push the buttons to flash a new config.
Just make sure the right port is selected in arduino → tools → port and hit upload.

The only time you should need to push the buttons is when you have a bad/unresponsive program on the board.

I can’t get it to flash without pressing the buttons. That’s how it’s always been. not exactly sure why.

after restarting proffieOS it decided to work, how bizarre.

The buttons will wear out eventually, so making sure you don’t have to press them every time you program is important.
