Not until the v6 release. There just was not enough time to work on the new file formats during the v5 cycle.

Hi Wayne,

This means that this will be addressed after the Kicad 5 release?

Thanks,

Augusto,

Most of this is going to be addressed during the next development cycle
when the new symbol library and schematic file format are implemented.
At the moment, there is no plan at this time to allow for resizing
symbols in schematics.  Since symbols will be embedded in the schematic,
resizing will be possible.  Thank you for your input.

Cheers,

Wayne

Hi,

I've been designing schematics with some stm32 parts using the standard
Kicad libraries, and a lot of these microcontrollers has 10+ functions
multiplexed in each I/O pin. In the standard library the symbols
displays all possible configurations available to each pin, I understand
the motivation of this choice (not having to refer to the datasheet
every time you want choose an I/O for some specific functionality), but
this results in very large symbols occupying the page.

I've come with a idea (which probably isn't new) to deal with this problem:
* You can select what functions you will use from a list for each pin
and only that will be displayed in the schematic;
* You can then resize the symbol accordingly directly in the schematic;
* While this wouldn't require any modification to the library symbol
file format as the description string of each pin already carries all
the necessary information, the .sch file format would probably be
changed and would not have backwards compatibility.

This may not be easy to implement as with the way eeschema handles
symbols today and the issues I've cited above, I would like hear about
your suggestions.

Thanks,
Augusto Fraga Giachero.
