Wishlist - Alternate Pins addition

Further to a recent post -

I’ve recently made a symbol using the 100 pin AVR2560 and I found the Pin Table very useful for the primary pin identification. What was a right royal PITA was (attempting) to add the alternative pins to this device using the workflow as it is now (v6.0)

Would it be possible to include the ‘Additional Pins’ options in the Pin Table window so that, as I did previously, a spreadsheet could be used and just past the values into table?
The number of mouse clicks etc is ridiculous if you consider that, potentially, I would have to enter 400+ pin names to correctly label the device.


Not sure if @devbisme ‘KiPart’ tool could help you here? KiPart 1.4.0 documentation

Here’s the issue to thumbs-up: Symbol editor: show alternate pin definitions in pin table (#9360) · Issues · KiCad / KiCad Source Code / kicad · GitLab
