You could try making, or editing a library component which has your custom socket
decal.  This component will be treated as 1 component.  In the schematic, just change
the IC's footprint to this new component decal.

Subject: [PEDA] Creating/implementing IC socket PCB decals


| Hello Group,
|
| I'm new to protel, trying to figure out how to create and implement IC sockets
decals/footprints on a PCB layout.
|
| Is it as simple as placing an IC and its socket on top of each other -or will that
create a design rule violation?
|
| In pads, we created a dummy part (without a footprint)that acted as a placekeeper
to get the socket part number on the BOM, I was hoping Protel might have a more
elegant solution.
|
| Any suggestions?
|
| Thanks in advance!
