That's what happens when you hit send before you think . . . you think
of something else . . .

The "PCI connector" is not just a double sided pad pattern, as it also
has a specific width and location (with respect to the rear of the
standard computer), along with a precisely located slot.

I guess someone figured they would give you everything you needed in one
fell swoop with the wizard.

If all else fails then just create a board outline with the wizard and
just copy the rest of your design into it, or if that won't work for
you, then copy the pad pattern and surrounding outline (remember to have
all layers turned on) to where ever you need it.

Use the wizard to create a PCB board with the PCI connector, then Make a
Library from the components of the board (which will only be the PCI
connector), then copy it from that library copy it to whatever library
you want it to be in.

Subject: [PEDA] PCI Schematic Symbol

I must be missing something! 

I can't find a PCI connector schematic symbol in any of the libraries,
even though the PCB wizard will create a PCI board for you, with a PCI
connector. 
(Is this a case of the left hand does not know what the right hand is
doing or what!)

Does anyone have a PCI schematic symbol that I can use?
