Add pins to schematic only (virtual pins)

Hello, firstly, sorry for the english!

I would like to know if there is any way to create a symbol that contains more pins in the schematic than pads in the pcb. In my case, I designed the connections of the bms with the LiPo, but this circuit boils down to a connector KK that will receive the output of the BMS. Below are the images of the symbol, the schematic and the error.

The only “solutions” I can think of is to ignore the DRC warning or delete this symbol and create another one with only two pins.

Thank you, Emanuel.

Ignoring those warnings is fine. It’s just KiCad telling you maybe you forgot to connect something.

PS: You can add those particular errors to an exclusion list so you don’t have to see them all the time.


Welcome ! out of your 2 options I would go with number 2. It honestly would be just a few minutes to create a symbol that suits the purpose and have no pesky errors ! but that’s just me :grinning:
