On my schematics I add a field to symbols that contains the company’s own inventory number for each part: Example (somewhat fake)
I would like the XCoPN field to appear on the PCB footprint, ultimately in an assembly drawing. I can see how to manually add such a field to a footprint, and make it visible on a particular layer, position it and so on…
But how do I create that footprint field and populate it with data automatically from the schematic?
I am using 5.1.9-1, but if this is something that improves in 6.x, that would be interesting too.
