Drawing off-grid lines, circles etc

Trying to modify the generic Q_NMOS_GSD symbol to a depletion mode transistor:

All drawing elements but 3 pins are off the grid. How can one connect the 3 elements of the broken line?

Yes a smaller grid is used to draw details like that. (Only pins must be drawn on a larger grid spacing to allow connecting them easily in eeschema) You can switch the grid in view -> grid settings.

We have a detailed lecture about designing symbols here: Tutorial: How to make a symbol (KiCad v5.1.x) (Grid handling see introduction section of that tutorial)

Great many thanks Rene, everything perfectly works!
