I just uploaded my powersymbol.lib to the yahoo forum file area at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/protel-users/files/ so you can all have a peek.

There is no absolute _must_ to modify teh built-in symbols, but the ones I created have no electrical hotspot and tend to get off-grid when I move them around on the schematic...
I _know_ that by making the pin 'visible' there will be a hotspot, but then it also wants a footprint and shows up on BOMs.....


I know, I know, I'm just being silly here.....

That's what I was meaning as I an mot sure what additional symbols are actually needed, NL is only a
puddle jump away from me and I have worked well with Dutch companies before and never been asked for
any additional symbols or had any other drafting conventions specified even when I was using
UltiCap/UltiBoard, an EDA package by a Dutch company! Which only had circle/bar power objects as
default but you could create your own.


I am actually a bit more curious on what additional symbols are needed than the process to do it.
