Trying to create multi-unit switch with one "special" unit

I’m trying to create a symbol for a special switch, it has 2x SPDT sections, and 1x SPST section.

So, UnitA and UnitB are the same, with a common, a normally closed, and a normally open pin.

But UnitC has only the common, and the normally open pin.

Is there a way do do that?? Every time I try to remove the pin from the third unit, it disappears from the first two units as well. I must be missing something.

Thanks for any insight!


It’s been a while since I had to alter a multi unit symbol. Somewhere I recall there being a choice saying something like “applies to all units”. I can’t find it quickly at the moment.

Multi unit symbols are handled in my Tutorial: How to make a symbol (KiCad v5.1.x)

TlDr: Ensure the symbol is setup for “not all units are equal” and then ensure the things are not set to “applies to all units”.

Thanks, Rene, the “not all units are interchangeable” parameter is what I was missing.
