Exclude from PCB option

Hi guys,

thanks for the great software. Please don’t listen to the few idiots who complaint about it. In fact I think no changes will be needed in a long time(20 years :D).

Here is 1 suggestion from me:

select a hierarchical sheet or multiple components in the schematic(Eeschema) and right-click -> exclude from PCB.



This is surely much faster than adding the prefix “#” in the name reference of every component which is not supposed to be on PCB.

Can you raise this wish as a bug on https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/

Originally rejected, after i posted a link to this thread the request has been accepted.

For those who didn’t follow the link, this should be possible in 6.0 because it will be possible to select symbols and mass edit the fields. It will be a more generic and a bit more complicated solution, not exactly a one-click solution.
