The reference field and component name do not maintain the same position in “creating new schematic symbol” to when the component is inserted into a schematic. I have the reference at the top left hand corner of the schematic symbol and the component name is at the bottom right corner, but when the symbol is inserted into the schematic it shows up way to the right of where the symbol was placed and is not near the outling box of the symbol. I am new to this software and is probably something I am doing wrong. Thanks for any assistance.
The fields are auto placed. This is necessary as you would otherwise not really be able to rotate the symbol (nor mirror it).
You can however turn it off somewhere in the preferences.
