I wanted to just “Reply” to Rene’s FAQ but that does not seem to be permitted
Generally when I make a symbol I like to start with an existing one and “Save Copy As”; then edit. It has been a while since I tried this for a power port, but I can remember only that it was difficult and maybe I was unable. So now what I do (and what I have just now done) is:
- Save and zip a copy of my own power ports .lib file for backup.
- Use a text editor on this file to duplicate and edit copies of existing power ports.
This is not difficult but it feels like cheating; not the right way. Is there a better way to do it from within the symbol editor for example?
I am not stuck and not in a hurry. If this is worth an edit to the FAQ item, I can wait to see it there.
