Kicad - Schematic Editor DO NOT PLACE components

Hi all is it possible to have DO NOT PLACE functionality in Schematic Editor?

Depends on what you need to achieve.
I need variant BOMs for same PCB. I add VARIANT custom field and set variant rules there.
Then I use KiBom as BOM generator script, passing my variant to the command.
This way I can get variant BOMs with DNP items.

However, there’s no true variant support in kicad.
It’s one of the wishlist features:

Cool! Could be helpful if components placed are “greyed” or marked in some ways.

Proper indication of DNP components (greying out, crossing out) is one of the parts of the “First class citizen Variant support” feature.
Now it’s only hacks/workarounds to get job done.
