I'm switching from Altium and I'm trying to figure out what would be the best solution for this problem.
I have 2 LDO Regulator with exactly the same package but different PIN number distribution.
I've made a symbole but I'm wondering If I really do need 2 different symbole just to swap CE and the NC pin
I couldn't see whether you'd attached images because the element14 link
wasn't working, so I've just got your text of NNTP. However...
If the two regulators want the same schematic symbol, and have the same
physical package, then you can actually accommodate both in one library
device with one symbol and one footprint. The trick is to set up two
"variants" in the device, which will need different variant names, but
can both use the same package. Then the "connect" dialog will let you do
different pin-outs for them. I think some of the default libraries do
that - probably some transistor types.
However, it may prove easier to manage if you create two devices. You
still won't need more than the one symbol and one package, but using
separate devices makes the naming (and hence finding the right one to
add) slightly easier.
