Here's my write-down of the first trial.
I took a part that was lying on my desk. It's a 9-pin LMG5200 GaN chip.
I opened the datasheet and copied the pin assignments
I pasted that in a spreadsheet, and cleaned it up. I added additional info for the KiPart utility.
I saved the file as a csv, and executed the utility.
And that was it. I ended up with a new symbol that I can use in KiCad.
It was a really straightforward exercise. It was easier to learn than the symbol editor - and better for my nerves. I mastered it in just a few minutes.
I've attached my csv and library file.
