Is there a way to creat a module that I could use exactly like a single component. The module would have its own schematic with hotspots and the corresponding layout would have the same hotspots… Example: I often redesign the exact same power supply for new PCBs. It would be good to design it once for all, footprint included. The schematic would have 4 hotspots, ~, ~, +, - or in+ in- out+ out-, and the footprint would have the exact same hotspots on the PCB layout.
I have searched into the history, and I’m not the only one coming with this idea, but there is apparently no existing method, except maybe in the schematic by concealing the power supply into its own sheet. But there is no equivalent in the PCBnew software. Is there any other method? Is it scheduled for a later version?
In the meantime, is there a way to copy a part of an existing schematic into another one? I tried without success.
